Climate crisis: from unequal impacts to collective response?

In this talk, we will look into the varied impacts of the climate crisis and the diverse responses it provokes across different communities. From lessons learned during historical events like the 1995 US heatwaves to current insights from around Global North and Global South, we’ll explore how social and economic disparities influence resilience and reactions to environmental challenges. We’ll investigate a wide range of responses—from shifts in voting patterns to inspiring collective actions—and discuss who and what motivates these efforts. How can we turn this global emergency into a unifying force, making climate action a shared priority for everyone?
