Activity

Series: University of Aberdeen, bringing the humanities to life

Description

Activists and policymakers often focus on a particular issue- climate change and human rights for example- while others my be arguing a different cause, such as more support for corporate interests or control of technology. When these clash, legal frameworks can deliver unexpected outcomes. Building on the research of Dr Abbe Brown who will chair this panel, the event explores hypothetical and real world experiences with representatives from civil society, law and the energy sector, with active contributions from the floor and via social media. Can we all, whatever our perspective, develop solutions more creatively, more strategically and ideally, more holistically?
