As temperatures rise year on year, the whole world is becoming more vulnerable to climate chaos. Yet the worst effects are mostly suffered by those in the global south who have contributed least to climate breakdown. To have any hope of adapting to a changing climate, while also preventing the crisis from getting even worse, we need a global just transition – but countries in the global south are hamstrung by a world economy that works in the interests of the rich.
Join us to discuss how colonialism, free markets and corporate power have created this crisis, and where reparations figure in an agenda for climate justice.
