In these times of climate emergency, it is the great pleasure of the Philosophy Programme at Dundee to share details of how one of our graduates is having an impact in rethinking environmental change. 

Next week, Waco Yokoyama, who graduated with first-class honours in Philosophy and Film in 2019, will be speaking at COP 26 in Glasgow, on the topic of decarbonizing global supply chains. If you would like to tune in to watch Waco’s contribution, you can do so through this link, 12 pm – 1 pm, Wednesday 10th November:

As Philosophy students, you have important things to contribute and say to a complex and changing world. But don’t just take the word of the Philosophy staff for it – tune in to Waco’s session and see her demonstrate it. 

Here is Waco’s COP 26 profile: Following graduation from Dundee, Waco was awarded a full scholarship to the University of Oxford. She has recently taken up a job as a policy analyst, where she integrates philosophical perspectives into her work.
