Climate Change - What do we know & Why does it matter?

Climate Change - What do we know & Why does it matter?Thursday, June 21, 2018
Location: L E Shore Library Gallery, Thornbury/Clarksburg

Thornbury-Clarksburg Rotary Club will be hosting Guest Speaker Dr. Sonja Klinsky PhD., MA, Hon BSc.

Sonja Klinsky is Assistant Professor at the School of Sustainability of Arizona State University. She was formerly a Researcher in the Cambridge Centre for Climate Change Mitigation Research, University of Cambridge.

She is currently involved in two major research trajectories. First, ongoing work that analyses how climate change policy has been developed and perceived in both domestic and international arenas. Currently this focuses on the development of cap and trade mechanisms and on debates about justice and equity at multiple levels. This work is particularly interested in the role and perception of economic modelling in policy decision-making, and the ways in which arguments about justice are embedded in climate change policy dilemmas.

Her second major research area focuses on methodologies for exploring public opinion about complex sustainability policy issues. This has included work on public understandings of “pro-environmental” behaviour, and of climate change policy in both Canada and Costa Rica. Previous work investigated the power of information and representation to shift public discourses of sustainability.

Sonja holds a PhD from the Institute of Resources, Environment and Sustainability at the University of British Columbia, an MA in geography from McGill University, and an Hon BSc in Environmental Science and International Development from the University of Toronto.
