(Hybrid) Tim Crosland, Irmak Kanyılmaz, and Linda Sheehan on Legislating for the Future

Thu June 29 @ 19 h 00 - 20 h 30

Hybrid Hybrid Event

Three environment experts discuss how legislation can lead us away from climate catastrophe.

How can we expand our sense of time to confront the long-term (and increasingly short-term) devastation of the climate crisis? How to, moreover, legislate against this devastation? And to legislate on behalf of who exactly? The rivers and the trees? The children of the future?

This event is organized n partnership with News Decoder and the Climate Academy at the European School of Brussels.

The Library’s contribution to this joint program is supported by the Florence Gould Foundation and the American Center for Arts and Culture.

Please note the special start time of this event.
