Join us for discussion on climate justice, what it means and how BME voices are coming together and being amplified in the environmental movement today.
Our panel is made up of three people with different connections to UWE Bristol; a current UWE Bristol student, a UWE Bristol alumni, and a UWE Bristol academic.
Jasmine Ketibuah-Foley: Broadcast journalist at the BBC, UWE Bristol alumni and Black and Green ambassador for Bristol (a Bristol Green Capital project).
Jona Razzaque: Professor of Environmental Law at UWE Bristol. An expert on environmental law in developing countries, Jona has researched widely on access to justice and participatory rights in environmental matters, and in 2019 acted as the Coordinating Lead Author of the Global Assessment on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services.
Gnisha Bevan: a UWE Bristol Masters student on our cross disciplinary course, Sustainable Development in Practice, and advocate for decolonising the curriculum. Gnisha is a consultant advisor on a range of environmental and social justice projects through Bristol-based consultancy, Creative Connex. Working with Roger Griffith, MBE, she is also co-creator of the Black Seeds Network, a new network for environmentalists of colour in Bristol and beyond.
