Free and open to all
Lunch (vegetarian sandwiches) will be provided
Please bring your own water/hot drinks
Following the success of the 20th September global climate strike and ongoing activities organised by local groups and unions regarding Lewisham’s public health crisis caused by air pollution, the Goldsmiths Critical Ecologies Research Stream invite you to an afternoon of presentations and discussions around methods for monitoring, sensing and contesting air pollution and toxicity.
Sergio Ruiz Cayuela (University of Coventry) will present the work of Toxic Bios: a guerilla narrative project mapping contamination, illness and resistance (Environmental Humanities Laboratory, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Sweden); and Jennifer Gabrys (University of Cambridge/Goldsmiths) will present Urban Sensing work carried out by the ERC-funded Citizen Sense project.
The session will take place ahead of a Lewisham Climate Emergency Assembly event later in the day (5–8pm, starting outside the main entrance) organised by the Goldsmiths unions and the Lewisham branch of the National Education Union.
Lunch will be provided at 1pm and there will be a brief introduction of the Critical Ecologies Research Stream, as well as introductions of participants ahead of the workshop and networking event in the evening.
Please see the Critical Ecologies website (below) for further details.
