I am looking forward to again working with the inimitable Max Gruenig to help put together a conference at the end of this month. The one-day event is titled, “A Justice That Sees: Making Environmental and Climate Justice Visible.” POCACITO, the Post Carbon Cities of Tomorrow, is a transatlantic initiative that continues to connect European and American climate praxis through a global community of professionals ranging from community advocates to architects. I participated with a mostly American contingent in the program in 2016 and later hosted European participants in Detroit for an event. The last POCACITO wrapped up, conveniently, in early 2020, and there may well be future contingents, but in the meantime, we’re returning to the scene with an event to talk about climate justice, and we’re soliciting abstracts for presentations!
Submissions should be from undergraduate and graduate students at DC area universities, and abstracts should respond to any of the following:
- What aspect of climate or environmental justice will you make visible?
- What kind of visual will you create?
- How is the information or message related to the way it is represented?
- What is a possible title for your poster? (This can change, but we want you to think how you will relate your concept to a broader audience.)
Please send inquiries and submissions via email to Brendan O’ Donnell at email@example.com. We will see you there!
