A Morning Discussing Climate Justice Education :: Third Generation Project

9 April 2022, 9:00–11:00 AM
This is a past event. See our upcoming events

From Third Generation Project:

This event highlights the work of our Emerging Researchers, both alumni and current, and how they have worked to produce research for the public on the many intersectional issues of Climate (In)Justice and how they can appear in education spaces. Our Emerging Researchers Programme was started in 2019 to train and work with undergraduate students seeking careers in research to develop a more critical lens to research and how to develop outputs that translate their research to different audiences. The end of the programme culminates in the completion of a research project that is meant geared towards public awareness around a subject relating to climate injustice and/or alternative pedagogies around injustice.

This event is the first time Emerging Researchers are presenting their research projects to the public and we would love for you to attend, and if possible share within your networks, too.
