Arkbound Foundation Book Launch
September 23, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:30 pm BST
The Arkbound Foundation’s Climate Fringe Week event.
This event will mark the launch of upcoming publication ‘Climate Adaptation: Accounts of Resilience, Self-Sufficiency and Systems Change’, a book written by 18 different authors from around the world. The book will cover case studies from these authors, detailing ways we can build adaptation and resilience, as well as looking at alternative socio-economic models based on zero waste, cooperation and sharing.
Three of the contributors will present their chapter in the book and give a talk surrounding it, in order to give a taster for the kind of content being covered.
A selection of the contributors include:
Dr. Ashish Kothari, who presents ‘a pluriverse of radical alternatives’, with a focus on India and the Global South
Professor Rupert Read, who introduces the concept of ‘Transformative Adaptation’ and how we can put it in practice
Dr. Ester Barinaga, who reviews different local currencies developed for and by vulnerable communities
Fazeela Mubarak, who presents the devastating details of the 2017 Lamu drought along Kenya’s Northern coast and how similar drought events can be dealt with
Dr. Meenakshi Sinha Swami, who speaks about the four oldest ecovillages from across the world and the sustainable pathways they have taken.
Dr. Morgan Phillips, who looks at ways in which Himalayan communities have already faced the impacts of climate change and how they have adapted to it
Sylvie Lodie, whose analysis of the Congo drought has implications for other African nations and food security
