Good Chance and guests explore the joint issues of migrant justice and climate justice in this special event.
The climate crisis is forcing people to leave their homes. It will force millions more to do so in the future. The issue of safe passage is an urgent one.
Along Amal’s 8000km journey she met many refugees like her who have been directly affected by the climate crisis. As borders are strengthened, how should we respond to this growing need to move to find safety?
In the heart of COP26, Good Chance Theatre will chair a discussion with:
- Onjali Rauf, author of Sunday Times bestselling children’s book, The Boy at the Back of the Class, and founder and CEO of Making Herstory and O’s Refugee Aid Team
- Kim Bryan, Director of Communications at international climate organisation 350.org
- Josie Naughton, CEO of global refugee support organisation Choose Love
- A Connect4Climate young leader discussing the outcomes of the recent Pre-COP26 Youth4Climate summit
- Kehkashan Basu, a contributor to The Global Youth Climate Inquiry, an initiative of One Young World, Mishcon de Reya LLP and the Democracy and Culture Foundation
Together they will explore the meeting points of climate change and migration and the urgent need to shape new narratives to create a viable future.
