How do children respond to a “roof on fire?” What can young people teach us about the future when the world is ending?
The Children and Youth Studies Caucus invites participants examining children’s experiences of and responses to climate change. Our discussion may address the following questions:
-What is the role of the child within climate change movements?
-How do young people articulate climate crisis, imagine and enact environmental change or simply survive a changing world?
-How are the young people of New Orleans and Louisiana addressing climate crisis and environmental disaster?
-Transnationally, what strategies of survival and change are children and young people enacting in their communities?
