Climate justice in future cities: geographical perspectives for inclusive urban resilience and adaptation

Organiser: JEAN MONNET

Thursday, 21 July 2022 | 14:00h – 18:00h

Room Seminar 2

Format: Presentation and discussion

The Climate Justice Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, that has been funded with support from the European Commission, responds to the need of bringing the issues of Climate Justice and just transition recognized in the EU Green Deal framework into the dialogue between the academic world, society and policy makers. The Centre works as hub generating, exchanging and gathering scientific knowledge, practices, expertise on EU climate justice policies at International, European, National and local level among research, institutions, civil society.

Programme:

The Conference will be articulated in two parts that include moments of presentation and discussion:

Moderators

  • Massimo De Marchi (DICEA, University of Padua and Academic Coordinator of the Climate Justice Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence)

Keynote speaker

Michael Goodchild (University of Santa Barbara, US) – Role in the project, if needed:

  • “Climate justice in the city: perspectives from GIScience and Voluntereed Geography”. He is the foremost expert in Geographic Information Science, as the science of collecting, analysing, digitising and using geographic data: from satellite navigation systems in cars and town planning to flood prevention and managing disease outbreaks, as well as the emerging IoT. He conied Voluntereed Geography and the concept of “Citizens as sensors”.
