Climate Justice Month—April 2018
Climate change is perhaps the most challenging global issue that humanity will face for generations to come. The consequences of climate change are playing out all over the world in ways that exacerbate already challenging and interconnected issues of food security, water security, international security, human health, and inequality. And vulnerable portions of humanity—those who have little power in climate debates and who have contributed relatively little to the causes of climate change—experience the most severe harm. The Climate Stories Collaborative presents this series of events to shine a spotlight on the stories of lives and livelihoods disrupted by climate change, and to motivate participants to engage in efforts to address climate justice issues in the present and future. See our Sponsors and Partners list below.
Screening of the award-winning film, Climate Refugees, which examines climate change induced displacement in 48 countries around the world. Climate related drivers of human migration include sea level rise and the increasing occurrence of extreme weather events such as hurricanes, droughts, floods, and wildfires. Watch trailer at www.climaterefugees.com. This screening is also part of the Sustainability Film Series in partnership with ASU's Office of Sustainability and is co-sponsored by Belk Library.
