Totally Glocally
Europe from the outside: Dealing with the Climate Crisis

 

Climate change with the resulting global warming is the largest and most all-encompassing global crisis of our time. As an ecological crisis it stands for the misuse of fossil fuels and the exploitation of natural life-support systems, which includes the destruction of biodiversity and also irreversible damaging impact on the geological sphere. Furthermore, climate change is a geopolitical problem. It is already stoking socio-political instability, creating migratory pressure, exacerbating global inequality, endangering human rights and putting peace in the world at risk.

How is the world looking at Europe from the outside, and what are the associated hopes and disappointments? Which answers does international law and multilateral institutions offer and also which challenges are they facing? When are relational non-Western models of knowledge production and exchange required? And how can the role of international civil society be discussed in this context?

The webtalk series 'Totally Glocally. Europe from the outside: Dealing with the climate crisis' is a cooperation event with Ecologic Institute and Climate Alliance.
