Sarah Agustiorini kicked off the 2023 Environmental Praxis Lecture Series with the talk, “Borneo’s Struggle to Survive Coal and Climate Change” on January 31. The talk is now available for viewing here –
Sarah reported back from the UN Climate Change Conference (COP 27) in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt, and provided a critical take on climate financing schemes and Indonesia’s plans to build a new “green” capital city in her region.
Sarah is based in Samarinda, Indonesia and is an activist against the harms of coal mining in her region and combines eco-feminist and feminist political ecology thought in her activism. She is with the Mining and Women Working Group (TKPT), founded to address gender violence at mines in Borneo, and the Mining Advocacy Network (JATAM) East Kalimantan.
St. Thomas University’s Environmental Praxis Guest Lecture Series is an online interdisciplinary lecture series with thinkers and activists on today’s pressing environmental issues.
