IMPAKT collaborates with Aksioma to present you Aksioma’s online event series (re)programming: Strategies for Self-Renewal. The event is organised by Aksioma and will be streamed on the Facebook channels of Aksioma and IMPAKT. The upcoming stream is on 19 April and will focus on the theme ‘Energy’ with Holly Jean Buck: Can We Repair the Climate?

Holly Jean Buck knows we have the tech to restore the earth and repair the climate. In After Geoengineering she takes a deep dive into the envisioning, development, and deployment of tactics and schemes for deliberately intervening in the environment, including Solar Radiation Management (SRM) and Carbon Dioxide Removal (CDR), with a useful best and worst-case scenarios perspective. Most importantly, she takes a holistic, integrated appreciation of ecological systems, proposing the new social formations needed to implement them, tackle mitigation and manage schemes that acknowledge the differential vulnerability for rural, impoverished and indigenous populations.

Her book After Geoengineering: Climate Tragedy, Repair, and Restoration examines best-case scenarios for carbon removal. Most recently, she was the co-editor of Has It Come to This? The Promises and Perils of Geoengineering on the Brink, a Rutgers University Press volume where thinkers, scholars and activists ranging from sociology and geography to ethics and Indigenous studies examine the chances for democratic climate governance.
