Season for Ex-Change Two
‘Justice’: a panel discussion
Guest Curator Thimali Kodikara hosts a panel discussion on what justice means within, and beyond, and a climate context.
Justice: its meaning and function has been debated and considered in public conversations more so than in recent memory. But how might these ideas feed into our priorities and approach to communicating the argument for urgent action on climate.
This is a discussion guest curated by Thimali Kodikara and featuring panellists including Magid Magid.
