From Climate Crisis to Climate Justice
This winter we have the pleasure to have Shailja Patel as a guest at this special introduced seminar. It will be just as intimate as all of our “fåtöljen-seminarier”.
The poet, playwright and activist Shailja Patel will talk about the climate crisis in Africa including climate debt, and the role of USA and NATO as big carbon emitters.
CNN describes Shailja Patel as ”the people-centred face of globalization.” She connects the dots of global justice. Her performances have received standing ovations on 4 continents. She has been African Guest Writer at the Nordic Africa Institute, poet-in-residence at the Tallberg Forum, and was named one of Fifty Inspirational African Feminists by the African Women’s Development Fund. In 2012, she represented Kenya at the London Cultural Olympiad. Her book MIGRITUDE, a bestseller in the US, has just come out from Celanders Forlag.
