Climate Ethics

Institution: Technical University Delft

Instructor: Anna Melnyk

Description: Climate change is considered to be one of the most urgent problems the world is currently facing. Two types of solutions are proposed namely mitigation and adaptation. Both climate change mitigation and adaptation are heavily relying on the progress of technology. Addressing the climate problem requires, however, more than just developing and applying a certain technology. It demands considerations of whose interests and whose rights are at stake. It also requires reflection on how and “under which condition” technology can change and shape the world for the better. Starting 2023, the arts will be incorporated to engage with climate ethics in a more personal, emotional, and embodied manner.
