Prof. Tasheen Jafry
‘About climate justice: What does it mean and what lies ahead?’
This autumn and winter, we are inviting some of the UK’s most eminent experts working in climate science to the IMAX theatre.
Join us as we strengthen our understanding of the climate emergency and the impacts of changes to society. Dive deep into potential solutions using policy and science and join the discussion by posing your climate questions.
In July 2023, scorching heatwaves marked a milestone in Europe, while Scotland experienced its hottest June on record. Unprecedented rainfall brought ecological and socioeconomic turmoil to several regions. Yet, the brunt isn't borne equally; those with minor carbon contributions face the frontline of erratic weather extremes.
Despite its proximity, the harsh truth of climate disparities stays concealed. Scotland must step up to embrace and implement a climate justice framework. This dedication is vital to formulate effective strategies against climate inequality, ensuring universal well-being and sustained economic prosperity.
