Synopsis: LSE's Institute of Public Affairs and the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment invite you to an innovative public session which will explore who constitutes the innocent, how they are impacted by climate change and how they lack access to power. It will consider if these issues can be overcome and suggest ways in which they can.
The session will be framed by a discussion with Nicholas Stern, Chair of the Grantham Research Institute and President of the British Academy and Mary Robinson, Former President of Ireland and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights and currently President of the Mary Robinson Foundation - Climate Justice.
This will be followed by interventions from a panel comprising representatives from a panel comprising representatives of the Innocent: the marginalized, the poor, youth, workers and future generations. Panellists representing the political world and the corporate voice will respond to the issues and concerns raised by the Innocent, outlining both the challenges of political office and the realities of the corporate world.
The audience will have an opportunity both to make observations and to put questions to the panellists regarding what can be done to find solutions to the problems identified.
