Worldwide Teach-In Climate / Justice

On 30.3.22 join 1,000 Universities, Colleges, K-12 Schools, Faith Communities

Worldwide Teach-In Climate / Justice

The Worldwide Teach-In is a project of the Graduate Programs in Sustainability at Bard College in New York, USA, in conjunction with partners worldwide and the Open Society University Network. And APRU is a strategic partner of the project.

This event focuses on creating Climate and Justice dialogues at K-12 Schools, Colleges, Universities, and greater communities across the globe. On March 30, 2022, help mobilize 1000 communities, in-person and online, in a one-day WORLDWIDE Teach-In on climate solutions and justice. We have easy-to-organize models for colleges, universities, high schools/middle schools, K-6 and faith communities. Engage hundreds of members of your campus and community in critical dialogue on just climate solutions.

The goal of the Teach-In is to grow students with widespread climate despair into citizens with the agency to take action and the purpose of understanding that our faculty can insightfully provide.

Beyond Climate Despair: Realistic Optimism

The world’s top climate scientists have told us we have a ten-year window to make rapid reductions in the carbon pollution causing global warming in order to hold the warming to the low end of under 3 degrees F. If we don’t, we will severely destabilize the global climate, leading to extreme weather, droughts, floods and sea-level rise that will be increasingly hard for humans to manage.

The  good news on climate is that clean energy solutions– solar, wind, battery storage, electric vehicles and more— have gotten cheap and are getting cheaper. In many markets, these solutions now cost substantially less than  polluting fossil fuel alternatives. Scaling up climate solutions is increasingly about smoothing the paths for adoption, and making sure that all people share in the benefits. Much of this work needs to happen locally within cities and states across the world.  Local action around climate solutions can open the road to solve climate change over the next decade. Together let us identify meaningful locally-oriented and fair solutions worldwide. On 30.3.22 help focus the world on what we can all do to lead the change for our shared future.

Solve Climate By 2030

APRU universities are joining the effort with 1,000 higher education institutions and high schools across the planet to offer in-person and online events in 50 countries to join in critical dialogue on just climate solutions and put us on the way to solving climate change by 2030.

The aims of the event are to:

  1. Broaden how people think about climate justice and action: beyond technological solutions to new ways of living, thinking, and relating to one another which encompass repair, restoration, reconnection (with land, ecosystems, people, and self), justice, equity, an ethic of mutual care, and radical inclusion;
  2. Create space and experiences which build community and foster resilience;
  3. Enjoy conversation, joy, rest, creative expression, and fun!

El término “Justicia Climática” utilizado por primera vez durante la COP 6 (2000), es pertinente para hablar del cambio climático más allá de la ciencia ambiental, abordando términos como justicia social y desigualdad. El concepto de Justicia Climática atribuye la responsabilidad del cambio climático a la humanidad, aportando una visión ética y motivando a la sociedad a tomar parte en la acción y mitigación de este. Se busca abordar el fenómeno como una oportunidad para actuar de forma ética ante decisiones políticas y económicas y así proteger al medio ambiente y a la población. El objetivo de este Webinar es discutir sobre el concepto de justicia climática desde diferentes áreas de experticia. También se presentan proyectos que muestran el gran abanico de temas que se pueden tratar en pro de tomar acción por el clima.

Resilient Urban Landscape

 

Hosted by Shanghai Jiao Tong University

 

Date & Time: April 8, 2022 at 12:00 noon (UTC +8) Check your local time

 

View the event webpage for more information.

The continuous impact of climate change and the crisis of biodiversity loss have forced global cities to rethink how to build more adaptable and resilient green infrastructure. The core idea of resilient city spatial development is to use multiple-scale planning and design approaches to enhance the stability of urban ecosystems, to promote citizens’ health and well-being, to increase wildlife habitats, and to resist unexpected impinges on the urban environment. Regional scale ecological space planning is as important as plant configuration within private gardens. Resilient urban landscape requires multiple perspective considerations, such as to enroll advanced technologies for spatial identification, evaluation, simulation and management, as well as human and artistic factors in sustaining social cohesion. This webinar is therefore intended to explore the role of spatial planning and design to establish urban open space with climate adaptability, rainwater infiltration and accumulation, and historical and cultural characteristics. Through sharing the research and practical experience in the United States, Australia and China, it will discuss the understanding of respecting nature, humanistic care, technological innovation and artistic creativity in the process of developing resilient cities.

 

The event is held in celebration of the 126th anniversary of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, as well as a member of APRU. It is intended to align with universities, professional associations and practices to call for global attention to environmental issues such as climate change, biodiversity loss may bring significant influences on urban ecological civilization, and suggests to seek innovative solutions with international perspective and local characteristics through international cooperation and communication.
