About this event
RJN’s Race and Climate Justice Collective is delighted to welcome you all to join us for the next session in the 2022 Race and Climate Justice Learning series.
We have a very special session this month! We are to welcome in our midst one, maybe two special guests, who hail from Kenya and who champion community activism and anti-colonialism in their respective fields.
Our topic this month is:
What is colonialism and Coloniality in the context of climate justice-
Learning from the south Part 1: Kenya
During this session, we will hear from the wisdom of the Global South through those who are having a daily and direct experience of the legacies of colonialism and whose perspectives on what is internationalism and solidarity arises out of a direct experience of these matters.
Our speakers are:
Irene Asuwa is a social scientist who is enthusiastic about ecological issues. She works with communities to amplify voices and actions on ecological issues.
Githuku Ndungi is an educator that uses art for human rights activism.
We will depart slightly from the usual format, but you will still be able to ask questions and make comments engaging our speakers and learn from the gathering more about how to practically and meaningfully apply the 13th Recommendation thinking and doing Framework.
We look forward to your presence. If you haven’t been in attendance recently, try to make this session! Let us be really present, as never before, to engage closely with the wisdom and knowledge, experience, and insight from ‘the South’.
look forward to welcoming you into this auspicious space:
