Welcome! My name is Georges Alexandre (Alex) Lenferna, I am a South African Fulbright Scholar pursuing my PhD at the University of Washington based in the Philosophy Department. Before coming to UW I was a research associate at the IGERT C-CHANGE Interdisciplinary Climate Change Research Unit at the University of Kansas. Combining insights from the two areas, I focus on issues of climate change, global justice, poverty and inequality. Outside of the 'ivory tower', I am a leader of Confronting Climate Change, a Seattle based group dedicated to the fight for climate justice. We engage policy makers; educate members of the public; and organize the public for direct grassroots action. I am also a volunteer with the Citizens Climate Lobby where I push for equitable, effective and ambitious US national climate legislation.
See below for social media links and for my contact details.
I use social media primarily to disseminate articles and information relevant to issues of environmental, climate and social justice. Although a lot of the content is global in nature, some is particular to the African, South African and American context. If you're interested in following see the links below:
