The world’s militaries are major carbon emitters yet are not required to report their emissions, nor reduce them. This workshop will discuss the size of military carbon emissions, the role of the military sector in protecting extractive activities and offering armed solutions to climate change, as well as how this might be confronted with the aim of forging lasting just alternatives to war.
Facilitator Suzie Gilbert, activists, actress, and film maker; Key note speaker Stuart Parkinson, Scientists for Global Responsibility. Author of Under the Radar: the carbon footprint of Europe’s military sectors.
Panel: Nnimmo Bassey – Health of Mother Earth Foundation Nigeria, Nancy Mancias – CODEPINK US, Tim Pluta – World BEYOND War US, Hilary Evans – Movement for the Abolition of War UK, Raki Ap – Free West Papua Campaign, Nick Buxton – Transnational Institute.
