Chai Chat | Exploring Climate Justice, Aviation, and Planet Earth With Barnali Ghosh, founder of the Berkeley South Asian Radical History Walking Tour In 2009, Barnali Ghosh and Anirvan Chatterjee attempted to circumnavigate the world without setting foot on a plane, while interviewing 60 climate activists in 12 countries. On their return they founded the Berkeley South Asian Radical History Walking Tour, to tell stories of South Asian organizing in the their hometown of Berkeley, from anti-colonial freedom fighters in the 1910s to anti-racist organizers post-9/11. In this Chai Chat, Barnali will talk about lessons learned from their “Year of No Flying,” and how our organizing histories can inspire us to take on climate change— empire in a new guise. Barnali Ghosh works at the intersection of cities, climate, and activism. A former landscape architect, she works with Brown and Green: South Asian Americans for Climate Justice, the City of Berkeley’s transportation commission, and TransForm, a public transit, walking and biking advocacy organization. Cosponsored by the Markaz: Resource Center, Stanford Sanskriti, and Students for a Sustainable Stanford.
