Hello all,
The Call for Participation for @RISK: Knowledge Practices, Environmental Crisis & Environmental Action has been extended to Friday 23 July 2020. (see attached)

We are learning to live with a world that is seemingly perpetually at risk of everything nowadays, where responses are time sensitive, with consequences extending far beyond human domains, and throughout the more-than-human world, nonetheless requiring human action. The recent spate of record-shattering bushfires, floods and droughts, to name just a few examples, have brought into sharp relief how risk needs to keep being re-thought and re-practised, in and amongst climate shifts.

What is at risk? Whose risks matter? What knowledge do we need to effect change? How can we do better together from our diverse positions and situations? What are the personal and professional risks involved?

@RISK is all about the ongoing work of bringing these consequential matters into the foreground.

@RISK provides a platform for researchers, policy makers, practitioners and activists who want to engage with this topic outside of their disciplinary or institutional constraints, are already doing so, and/or, have always done so.
We are currently calling for participants as symposium presenter, panelist, poster creator and/or  podcast interviewee.

Our webpage  https://westernsydney.edu.au/ics/events/@risk  details the four themes of the project, as well as the ways to participate, and the form to submit your application.

Jess, and, on behalf of, Josh Wodak (j.wodak at westernsydney.edu.au<mailto:j.wodak at westernsydney.edu.au>)
