RSU Zinātnes nedēļas un Starptautiskās studentu konferences ietvaros aicinām uz Evas Johansones meistardarbnīcu, kurā dalībnieki pievērsīsies tādai svarīgai tēmai kā klimata taisnīgums. Tādēļ īpaši uzrunājam visus studentus, kam nav vienaldzīga planētas nākotne, bet arī klimata jautājumu komunikācija, sabiedrības veselība vērtību un paradumu kontekstā, taisnīgums un klimata politika. Pati Eva Johansone par savu darbnīcu saka: “Tā kā man ir biologa un filozofa izglītība, tad apvienošu savas akadēmiskās zināšanas, lai parunātu par ētiskām izvēlēm klimata kontekstā. Platona darbos jau pirms 2500 gadiem noformulēti četri tikumi, kas aktuāli arī mūsdienās: gudrība, taisnīgums, drosme un mērenība. Tikums (sengr. aretē – izcilība) ir noturīga rakstura īpašība, dispozīcija uz labu rīcību, kas ved pie laimes (eudaimonia). Tā ir morālās izcilības pazīme gan indivīda, gan kopienas mērogā, tāpēc tikums ir aktuāls gan ētikas, gan politikas kontekstā. Gan lokāli, gan starptautiski. Caur šiem četriem tikumiem sagatavošu gan prezentāciju, lai iepazīstinātu ar klimata taisnīguma jēdzienu un praktiskiem piemēriem, gan sagatavošu darbu grupās, lai risinātu situācijas, kas saistītas ar mūsu ikdienas rīcību”. Pasākums norisināsies sadarbībā ar organizāciju “Zaļā brīvība” un ES SPARK projektu.
