History matters. In 2022, the UN’s intergovernmental panel on climate change finally recognised colonialism as a main driver of the climate crisis. The acknowledgement opened a long overdue discussion about historical actions, current responsibility and racial equity in and between countries.
But progress amongst leaders to follow suit and link these issues has been slow. Racial justice, colonialism and climate justice are rarely mentioned in the same breath.
What will it take to truly decolonise climate conversations, actions and solutions? What role does the church play? As leaders, experts, activists – and fossil fuel lobbyists- get ready to gather in Dubai for COP28 climate talks, this webinar brings together panelists to explore these questions.
- Rev Dr Israel Oluwole Olofinjana, Director, One People Commission Evangelical Alliance
- Ruvimbo Makumbe, Digital Labs Manager, The Church of England
- Lydia Harrold, Campaigns and Activism Officer, Christian Aid
- Passy Amayo Ogolla, Programme Manager, Society for International Development
We’ll also allow time for individual reflection to consider what we as Christians and campaigners, can do in our own lives to move on these conversations and restore justice.
