Please note that the webinar has a new start time of midday, ending at 1.30pm GMT, on Monday 29th November 2021.

How are the impacts and causes of global heating shaped by gender inequality? Will climate change exacerbate violence against women? How can feminism help us to tackle the climate crisis? Does Covid-19 present an opportunity to shift gender norms and our relationship with the environment? These are some of the questions which will be explored in this interdisciplinary, free public webinar, open to all, organised by members of Durham University‚Äôs Centre for Research into Violence and Abuse (CRiVA) as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science. It will take place during the 16 Days of Activism Against Gender-Based Violence, and in the wake of the crucially important UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow, so we will reflect on the outcomes of the conference as part of the discussion.
