Climate change and revolution
Climate crisis is upon us. By choice or necessity, New Zealand will transition to a low-emissions future. But can this revolution be careful? Can it be attentive to the disruptions it inevitably creates? Or will carefulness simply delay and dilute the changes that future people require of us?
Chaired by Thomas Coughlan, this panel explores the politics and practicalities of the low-emissions transition, touching on issues of justice, tikanga, trade-offs, finance, futurism, adaptation, and more. Panelists include David Hall and Maria Bargh, alongside other contributors to BWB Text A Careful Revolution.
Amelia Sharman, Principal Advisor at the Productivity Commission, is a contributing author (with her ‘Trade-offs and tough choices’ chapter) and will take part in this panel discussion.
Event details: Monday 22 July, 6–7pm (doors open 5.45pm), City Gallery of Wellington
