We traveled to NUI Maynooth to sit down with Emeritus Professor of Social Policy at the University of Bath, Ian Gough. Ian is also Professorial Research Fellow at the Centre for the Analysis of Social Exclusion (CASE) and his current research project is on the intersection of climate change mitigation policy and social policy.
For the last decade he has been researching into the social dimensions of climate change, the impacts of inequality and capitalist growth on global warming, how universal human needs can yet be satisfied and how eco-social policy might safeguard sustainable wellbeing. The result has been published as Heat, Greed and Human Need: Climate change, capitalism and sustainable wellbeing (2017).
