3 June, Munich History Lecture with Glenda Sluga

From the Planetary to the Global, and other lost histories of the 20th century.


In 2023, the appointment of an ‘oilman’ to lead one of the most important climate change conferences of our time, COP28, raised some controversy. But it was not the first time that oilmen have taken the lead in international environmental governance. In this lecture, Professor Glenda Sluga returns to this lost history of the involvement of ‘oilmen’ in the earliest examples of international environmental governance in order to recover the extent and significance of early 1970s’ debates focused on the ‘planetary’.
