A culture-centered approach to climate change adaptation: Insights from New Zealand
In Climate Futures: Re-imagining Global Climate Justice (Zed: London, 2019). Edited by Kum-Kum Bhavnani, John Foran, Priya Kurian and Debashish Munshi.
Takes a culture-centered approach to radically reframe the narratives around climate change and the inevitability of climate chaos.
Approaching the issues of climate change and climate justice from a range of diverse perspectives including those of culture, gender, indigeneity, race, and sexuality, as well as challenging colonial histories and capitalist presents, Climate Futures boldly addresses the apparent inevitability of climate chaos.
Seeking better explanations of the underlying causes and consequences of climate change, and mapping strategies toward a better future, or at a minimum, the most likely best-case world that we can get to, this book envisions planetary social movements robust enough to spark the necessary changes needed to achieve deeply sustainable and just economic, social, and political policies and practices.
Bringing together insights from interdisciplinary scholars, policymakers, creatives and activists, Climate Futures argues for the need to get past us-and-them divides and acknowledge how lives of creatures far and near, human and non-human, are interconnected.
