The climate crisis is undermining democracy just at the time we need it most. We need a strengthened ability to govern together, across divides, in order to forge our path toward a more just, sustainable future.
In this talk, Dr. Kate Knuth will develop the idea that an ethic and practice of citizenship capable of responding to the climate crisis will help us as individuals and society thrive in our time. She will discuss how the climate crisis creates new challenges for citizenship and offer practical ideas for developing a practice of citizenship in the climate change era.
