About the Show
Climate change is hitting some of us harder than others. For people with disability, it brings a unique set of potential impacts and consequences, from shelter and news accessibility during extreme weather events to sustainable housing and migration restrictions.
In this conversation, our panellists will discuss inclusion and access in the context of the climate crisis. Is the global climate justice movement adequately attuned to the varying needs of people with disability?
How can disabled writers and artists use storytelling to re-centre climate change discussion and strategy? And how might people with disability be especially well equipped to lead discussions of – and find solutions to – questions of climate adaptation, access and resilience, for themselves and for everybody?
