Youth Environment Europe (YEE) is organizing a webinar on Climate Change and Migration, this Friday 23rd October 2020 from 17:00 to 18:15 CEST. This will be the first in a series taking place within #ClimateOfChange, a pan-European campaign to build a better future for climate-induced migration, the human face of climate change.

Climate change is expected to have major impacts on human mobility. Natural disasters and environmental degradation affect the movement of people, at times making it difficult for communities to remain in areas their ancestors have inhabited for decades and centuries. On the other hand, people have always moved under the combined influences of changing environments, economic, social and political dynamics. Why does this kind of migration deserve special attention in the context of climate-related disasters in the 21st century?
Join this insightful event with Ms Mariam Traore Chazalnoel, Senior Expert in Migration, Environment and Climate Change at the IOM, Ms Lucie Pélissier, Co-President of CliMates and consultant for Des Ponts Pas Des Murs (Bridges not Walls), a network to map civil society actions on environmental migration, Ms Marta Rodrgiguez and Mr Lillo Montalto Monella, two journalists behind Euronews’ Europe’s Climate Migrants web series, and a speaker from the Hugo Observatory at University of Liège, a research center committed to the study of interactions between environmental changes, human migration, and politics.
Speakers will all tackle the intersection between Climate Change and Migration from different perspectives. After a brief discussion among the panelists, we will open the floor to a discussion with the audience.
The Online Panel Discussion will be via Zoom and Livestream on YEE’s Facebook page.
