Seminar #15: Ana Terra Amorim-Maia



🌿 The fifteenth CreaTures and Friends seminar will take place on

March 8th, 2022, 12:00-13:00 CET 🌿

In this talk, Ana proposes an intersectional pivot in climate action to help understand the interconnected forms of social-environmental injustices that drive vulnerabilities in cities. She presents a new conceptual framework for ‘intersectional climate justice’ and illustrates it with examples of ongoing projects in Barcelona, which put gender and climate justice at the fore. 

On the second half of the seminar, we use these learnings to collectively design a “climate refuge” for our neighborhoods or local communities. Climate refuges are local spaces where vulnerable populations can take shelter during extreme weather events – but they can be much so more than that! Let’s collectively unravel their full potential to be truly inclusive, engaging, and transformative spaces in our cities.
