COP27 Debrief – Beyond Doomism and Solutionism in Response to Climate Change
Based on the University Affairs OpED with the same title, this panel presents the experiences of Indigenous and racialized UBC delegates at COP27 and problematizes the approaches of climate doomism and climate solutionism in responses to the climate and nature emergency (CNE), focusing on how both approaches discourage engagement with the complexities of the CNE.
Panelists: Dr. Vanessa Andreotti, Dr. Pasang Yangjee Sherpa, Dr. Shannon Waters, Dr. Sharon Stein (chair) and student coordinator Charlotte Taylor.
