Militarism, Climate Change & Global Dissent

Militarism, Climate Change & Global Dissent

 from 3:30 pm to 5:00 pm
Virtual Event

The militarization of societies, and the industrialization of warfare, are major (and often hidden) causes of environmental damage and climate change. The concept of “security” is mixed up with usage of vast resources to make constant preparation for war and increase readiness to destroy the planet.

From the carbon boot-print of military activity to the wider costs of conflict; from corporate greed to the role of militarized suppression of dissent – this session will look at the critical intersections between militarism and the climate crisis – and how these can be challenged. As one exacerbates and intensifies the other – it is ‘from the ground up’ that we resist; it is from the ground up that we take action. Lorah Steichen, of IPS’s National Priorities Project will be moderating the workshop and Basav Sen, of IPS’s Climate Policy project will participate as a speaker.

Registration is required to attend the event.
