Local Global Journal launch
Readings State Library — State Library of Victoria, Cnr La Trobe and Swanston Streets, Melbourne, Victoria
The shallow and divisive public debate on climate change in Australia has reached a logjam.Taking its lead from Mike Hulme’s book, Why We Disagree About Climate Change (2009), this edition of the Local Global Journal suggests some ways to bring values back into discussions about climate change adaptation. It presents the work of a wide range of scholars exploring topics related to affect, religion, art, politics, community engagement, way-of-life, and our responsibilities for forest conservation in Indonesia.
The edition will be launched by Cam Walker, who has worked for Friends of the Earth in Melbourne since 1989 and has served for six years on the Executive of FOE International. Comments will also be offered by Ellen Sandell, National Director of Australian Youth Climate Coalition.
