Climate Refugee Stories: Building the Road to Resilience

Date: 
Thursday, May 31, 2018 - 15:00 - 17:30

Climate Refugee Stories is a multi-media narrative and archiving project that uplifts the stories of people around the world who have been displaced by direct or indirect impacts of climate change, and documents the ways communities are responding to these crises. There are currently no legal protections for “climate refugees” in international law. Furthermore, the United States’ current policies of climate change denialism, increasing militarization, and border controls are exacerbating a global refugee crisis.

But there is hope. Storytellers and audiences are invited to debate and define "climate refugees" for themselves--to reveal the historical, political, economic, and environmental causes of migration, and to provide tools for building community resilience and allying movements for social and environmental justice.

 Join this interactive storytelling, art, and community discussion event facilitated by Monica Curca of Activate Labs.
