Symposium : Climate Change & Societal Turbulence
What type of socio-political engagement can we consider? In the face of numerous questions regarding our future, this year’s symposium offers a space for an honest observation of our collective and individual standpoints. This is an opportunity for the audience to take a closer look at the uncertainties brought by 2022, unpacking and igniting their observations while providing key elements of analysis and comprehension.
The event will bring together a collection of thinkers and scholars from various disciplines to discuss and exchange ideas that revolve around the following axes and guiding questions:
→ Transformation; How do we approach transition? Discussing the spectrum of human reactions to the perspective of social/societal discrepancies
→ Deviation; are we moving backward? Linking global advancement on SDGs and Human Rights (its recoil even prior to the pandemic impacts) what are we currently heading toward.
→ Mutation; did Human Rights become selective? Which are our possible directions?
