Here is another of the videos done by Oxford University faculty Elaine Chase & Robert Walker

They write: "The link between poverty and shame has important implications for how we think about, design, and build policies intended to alleviate poverty. Our research, carried out with colleagues in the United Kingdom, China, India, Norway, Pakistan, South Korea, and Uganda, found that shame is an important part of the experience of poverty in all these countries.

People in poverty in all seven countries described feeling ashamed at being unable to live up to their own or others’ expectations due to a lack of income and other resources. But more importantly, they reported routinely being stigmatized, labeled, shunned and ignored in many different spheres of their lives.

Using this research, we have produced a series of short films to start an alternative conversation about poverty. These films, produced in collaboration with the UK Media Trust, present these different world views back to the public, to the media, and to politicians.

In this, the second of the films, we meet two families living very different lives in Pakistan."

Climate Change, Intergenerational Ethics, & Political Responsibility, with Stephen Gardiner

University of Washington's Professor Stephen Gardiner discusses the ethics of climate change from intergenerational, political, and personal perspectives. Should individuals feel bad for using plastic straws or eating meat? What should the UN and its member states do? And how can older generations make up for "a massive failure in leadership" that has led, in part, to the current crisis?

C2G Update: Nature-based Solutions, the UN, & the IPCC Reports, with Janos Pasztor

Janos Pasztor, executive director of the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G), gives an update on his team's work after a busy week in New York. In the wake of troubling IPCC reports on climate change's effect on the oceans and land use, what more can the UN do? What are the challenges of nature-based solutions? And how should we handle climate change fatigue, individually and on a societal level?
