Climate change has been called a “perfect moral storm”*meaning a challenge that involves collective action problems across country borders, with costs and benefits spread over many generations. This workshop explores and evaluates how institutions, policies and technologies might allow us to deal fairly and effectively with climate change; considering the way its causes and effects involve people from very different material, generational, and national circumstances.

(*The term was coined by Steven Gardiner.)

The workshop will be interdisciplinary, online and asynchronous. Twelve authors will provide works-in-progress (WIPs) to registered attendees, including several special invited guests. These WIPs can take the form of a 15-20 minute video, a 3000-4000 word document, or both. The WIPS will be accessible over 14 days.
