On October 7, 2022 you are cordially invited to the public program Revolt! Degrowth! Decolonize! Global Climate Agendas, Local Struggles. Together we will engage in conversation about our contemporary climate crisis and its colonial and capitalist underpinnings. About how its effects are disproportionately affecting indigenous people, people of color or poor people in the Global South, even as these communities are least responsible for the crisis.
We will be joined by KITLV researchers, scholars, artists, and activists. Central questions we will address are: What is the role of scholars, artists and activists in addressing the climate crisis? How can we call government, science and the corporate sector to account for their responsibility for this catastrophe? Revolt! Degrowth! Decolonize! forms the beginning of a longterm commitment in which KITLV aims to develop a research agenda that contributes to an intersectional and decolonial perspective on climate justice.
