Centering Climate Action in Climate Justice – Insights from The Climate Justice Playbook for Business

About this event
The Insights for Action seminar series explores how researchers and practitioners within and beyond Oxford are using research insights for action. Join us to hear conversations between researchers and practitioners who are working across disciplines, sectors, and media to understand and create more equitable and just social, economic, environmental, and health systems.

In this seminar, Dr Jessica Omukuti and Raj Aggarwal draw on insights from The Climate Justice Playbook for Business: How to centre climate action in Climate Justice (2021) and Oxford Net Zero to discuss the systems work needed to build an equitable and climate just world.
