Eastern Regional Organization for Planning and Human Settlements (EAROPH) International and its Climate Change Subcommittee are organising a webinar:
Date: 24 September 2021
Time: 3:00 – 7:00 pm (Melbourne Time) / 1pm - 5pm (HKT)
Topic: ‘What does climate justice look like?’
EAROPH International is a non-governmental multi-sectorial organisation encompassing the private, public and academic sector and was established to foster the exchange of different knowledge and experience among countries in the EAROPH region. This webinar is an opportunity for intergenerational dialogue about the impacts of climate change on communities across the Asia Pacific region.
The adverse impacts of climate change are not created equal, nor evenly distributed. Climate justice brings to fore the different social, economic, environmental, and other impacts on people especially in vulnerable island states as well as inland and coastal communities. Climate justice should include first and foremost the voices of these at-risk communities.
Speakers are traditional owners and islanders from Fiji, Tuvalu, Samoa, Kiribati, Australia and New Zealand, leading professionals from Pakistan, Malaysia and Indonesia, and youth from throughout the Asia-Pacific. The voices of these people are represented in this event’s four sessions.
The four sessions are:
- Intergenerational justice involving youth voices
- Justice from an indigenous perspective
- Addressing the demands from vulnerable island states
- Addressing the threats to vulnerable coastal and inland communities.
The webinar outcomes will feed into the UN Climate Change Conference in October which will feed into the Glasgow COP26 in November.
