A Public Talk on Climate Change, Emotions and Everyday Life
Dr Kari Norgaard, Public Talk on the 6th October, 2014 at 6pm
On Monday, 6th October, the Trinity Long Room Hub at Trinity College Dublin will host a public talk examining Climate Apathy by Dr Kari Norgaard, a sociologist at University of Oregon. Dr Norgaards talk entitled Living in Denial: Climate Change, Emotions and Everyday Life asks a timely question, namely why, given our increasing knowledge about climate change, do so many of us fail to take action? Dr Norgaards talk addresses questions of fundamental importance for all those interested in moving the discussion from questions of whether climate change is happening to specific actions on how to tackle climate change.
The talk is the first in a series of workshops and three public talks run by the Andrew W. Mellon funded European Observatory of the New Human Condition.
Date: 6th October, 2014
Location: Neill/Hoey Lecture Theatre, The Long Room Hub, Trinity College Dublin
