CSDE Seminar- Ethical Dilemmas in Relocation as Climate Change Adaptation
When: October 14, 2022 (12:30-1:30pm)

Where:  Virtually via zoom, register here

Join us for a talk with Assistant Professor at University of Delaware AR Siders, on a talk regarding ethical dilemmas in relocation as climate change adaptation. Adaptation to climate change may redress, perpetuate, or create social injustices. While stakeholders agree that adaptation should be just, they disagree on how justice should be defined or pursued. This talk will describe several ongoing projects related to adaptation justice in the context of relocation as an adaptation strategy. If you'd like to sign up for 1-on-1 sessions with Dr. Siders click the link here.
