Update August 24: Link to global nuclear status event
Student Pugwash is co-sponsoring the upcoming Thinkers Lodge Summit on Nuclear and Climate Crises, organized by the Centre for Local Prosperity. More information from the Summit's announcement:
Since 2017, focused retreats of invited Thinkers have gathered to inspire others on paths forward for humanity’s role in the climate crisis and our relationship to our planetary home. It is now time for a larger and broader summit to grapple with and resolve the compounded complexities of the double existential crises that we face today.
We are gathering 24 leading voices and thought leaders on nuclear non-proliferation and effective adaptive responses to the climate crisis. Invitees will represent an inclusive mix of backgrounds and experiences with these issues. This Summit will be focused on cross-learnings between crisis areas, public awareness building, advocacy and multi-level means for change. A central theme of the Summit will be intergenerational partnership and dialogue.
Applications for the Summit are closed (although there will be additional Summits in 2022), but there are upcoming online events open to the public. We'll update this post when we have more information about dates and times, and how to get involved.
