Learn about climate justice in Africa, climate justice as a threat to Indigenous sovereignty, BC’s oil tanker and pipeline projects and climate justice, and the global policy framework for acting on climate.
Featuring UBC scholars Temitope Onifade (PH.D. student, Allard School of Law) and Terri-Lynn Williams-Davidson (Masters student, Allard School of Law, Counsel to the Haida Nation), UBC Political Science Professor Kathryn Harrison, and UBC alumni and Staff Lawyer at West Coast Environmental Law Eugene Kung.
