We are delighted to introduce a selection of papers from our third year and MA students from the 2020-2021 academic year. It has been a challenging year: the global pandemic rages on, the climate crisis intensifies, and as a result social inequalities have been magnified and exacerbated. The papers in this issue exemplify how philosophical attention to these issues can both make valuable contributions to our understandings of these epoch-changing events, and provide practical recommendations for how to move through them – as well as, on occasion, lighthearted escape from them! We also think these essays provide rich examples of engaged philosophy. We invite you to read and think about them and to let us know if you wish to contribute your own thoughts to the conversation.
