Parlour Reading Room 5: Intersectionality and the climate crisis
26 April, 2022
The fifth Parlour Reading Room collection considers the climate crisis through an intersectional lens, imagining our “still possible shared futures” (Osborne, 2018, 148). The collection highlights the need to undo dominant concepts of nature, the politics of failure for the politically depressed, the impact of Climate Change on Indigenous communities and whether the equal representation of women’s voices at COP26 would have made a difference.
In March 2022, we hosted a conversation between Sumita Signha and Natalie Osborne to reflect on the inequalities within climate advocacy, how power structures may be renegotiated as climate change accelerates, and the role built environment professionals might have within climate justice. You can listen to this conversation here, alongside the collection’s facilitation prompts.
