A Season for Justice
In case you weren't counting, ClimateX has finished fifteen podcasts with a wonderful series of guests from within the MIT community as well as outside. The podcast hosts (Dave, Curt and I) have also been sharing our thoughts in writing. In doing so, we have assembled a great team that includes the podcast hosts, our content strategist Laura Howells, our studio engineer, Dave Lishansky and our project manager Nick Covaleski.
We are retroactively labeling our work so far as season one, i.e., the alpha stage of our growing platform. We are now ready for a more ambitious undertaking - a beta season two in which we will focus our attentions on one theme with the intention of creating a reasonably comprehensive resource on that theme.
Season two's theme is going to be Climate Justice. As we know, climate change surfaces several justice concerns such as:
- The unequal historical burden of climate change.
- The unequal distribution of climate harm.
- The devastation of the nonhuman world.
The list is long so we will have to be selective about what we include and how we cover those topics. I would love your ideas on:
- What topics should we cover?
- Whose work should we cover?
Thanks in advance!
