2023 Worldwide Teach-In on Climate and Justice

Wednesday, March 29, 12:30 to 5:00 PM

UNB Anthropology and UNB Libraries hosted a teach-in on climate and justice, part of the worldwide Teach-in on Climate and Justice global initiative organized by Bard College in upstate New York, with over 200 concurrent events on the day. With 60 participants, we facilitated discussions between local groups of educators, staff, and students, thinking about, talking about, and building communities committed to action on climate change.

The event included activities below: 

  • Student-moderated panels featuring climate-concerned faculty, students, and community members.
  • Two immersive VR films about climate change, Biidaaban from Canada and Storm Dog from Australia.
  • Remote feeds from with other climate Teach-in events around the world.
  • A creative writing workshop, Anthroposcream: Fiction Writing in the Climate Crisis, on the relationships between humans and animals in these ecologically tenuous times, presented by horror author Mike Thorn. 

This event was organized by Erik Moore, Liaison Librarian for Anthropology, Classics, and English and Dr. Noah Pleshet. 

This event was made possible by generous support from RAVEN (Rural Action and Voices for the Environment), the National Film Board of Canada, Goose Lane Editions, and UNB Sustainability.
