University of Hull academic Sunil Murlidhar Shastri FRSA has recently launched a website to coincide with the 33rd Anniversary of the United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea (UNCLOS).
Sunil firmly believes that an approach based on equity and justice encompassing people, planet and profit would lead to peaceable solutions. The website is intended to be the vehicle for his MasterClass, Education, Training and Consultancy activities through advice, advocacy and action (a fourth strand on arbitration is forthcoming).
Sunil’s rationale is built on his ‘Seven Pillars of Ocean and Environmental Governance’. These are :
- Science and technology
- Geopolitical economy
- Institutions and organisations
- Legislation and implementation
- Role of civil society
- Financial initiatives
- Education and awareness – a unique approach to this problématique.
Please visit his Website to find out more and share with your neworks. Sunil is open to any feedback and can be contacted here [email protected]
On Wednesday 13 July, artist and activist Salma Zulfiqar FRSA invites you to a free film screening and Q&A of 'The Migration Blanket - Climate Solidarity', showing artworks of women on the frontline of the climate crisis.
The Sustainable Development Goals Network invites RSA Fellows to their next MeetUp on Wednesday 13 November in the Paddington Development Trust facilities, co-organsied by Carolina Karlstrom FRSA.
Building up to a final event the participants have explored the complexity of the issues, understanding different viewpoints, trying ideas out and coming up with solutions. The pilot will culminate with young people coming together later this year to discuss their ideas and findings with local Fellows, Edible Oils Collaboration and https://www.iucn.org/IUCN representatives. The outcome will be a position paper produced by the participants on the sustainable use of palm oil. We will share the paper and a report through the RSA network so you can see what young people are thinking. The project will be evaluated before initiating future conversations on controversial issues defined by policy makers and young people. Please contact [email protected] if you’d like to know more, or if you’re interested in attending the final event on 14th November, or if you have a suggestion for future conversations that would benefit from a youth perspective.
