Ethemcan’s main research interests are climate justice, migration in the context of climate change, energy democracy and environmental movements.
Disobedience (2016) tells the story of a new phase of the climate movement: courageous action that is being taken on the front lines of the climate crisis on every continent, led by regular people fed up with the power and pollution of the fossil fuel industry. Filmed in the Philippines, Turkey, Germany, Canada, Cambodia and the United States, it weaves together these riveting stories with insights from the most renowned voices on social justice and climate.
Admission is free, and a refreshment will be served to the attendees after the event.
