This short workshop deals with the challenges of education in relation to disasters that are slow in the making and which happen often invisibly, described by Rob Nixon (2013) as ‘slow violence’. We will examine the role of co-authorship, community and capacity building in responding to these disasters in educational contexts, drawing on approaches used in two recent projects: the BERA Manifesto for Education for Environmental Sustainability and a UKRI/RSA experiment in public dialogue with youth on climate interventions (DICEY). The workshop will conclude with a discussion of future opportunities when engaging policy and other change makers with priorities in these areas.
