“Climate Futures, Design, and the Just Transition” at the Rhode Island School of Design, November 9, 2018 — I had the honor of participating in this fabulous symposium, which highlighted a wide cross-section of disciplinary approaches to socially just energy transitions. While I recommend checking out all of these talks and conversations, my presentation begins at the one hour, six minute mark.

“Climate Futures II: Design Politics, Design Natures, Aesthetics and the Green New Deal” at the Rhode Island School of Design – December 5, 2019

The sequel to the first Climate Futures symposium focused our attention on the Green New Deal. Once again, we had so many brilliant scholars and activists offering a diverse range of insights. I facilitated a lively discussion on racial capitalism and the GND with Shalanda Baker (Professor, Northeastern School of Law) and Jacqui Paterson (NAACP, Director of the NAACP Environmental and Climate Justice Program) that begins (with me fumbling my phone and book) around the 2 hour and 15 minute mark.
