Public Workshop: Climate Change in Carbon Communities

January 27, 2022 @ 8:00 pm - 11:00 pm

Public Workshop: Climate Change in Carbon Communities

27 January 2022 

Co-sponsors: Durham Energy Institute and Durham University Department of Geography

Co-organisers: Abby Kinchy (Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute and Durham University) and Jessica Lehman (Durham University)

How do communities that host fossil fuel extraction industries experience, negotiate, and adapt to climate change? This workshop aims to bring together researchers whose considerations of environmental justice, climate politics, and adaptation and resilience are grounded in sites of fossil fuel extraction (what we call ‘carbon communities’). By doing so, we hope to ask some of the ‘big questions’ of energy transition and climate crisis through the communities most intimately affected by fossil fuel extraction. Ultimately, we aim to collectively understand the significance of fossil fuel hosting communities for evaluating the contemporary politics of carbon.

**This is a late evening workshop (UK time) in order to accommodate participants from around the world. Please feel free to join or leave as your schedule suits **
