Online Cafe: How Does Climate Change Impact Human Rights?

Online
7:00pm – 8:30pm
Free

Millions of people are already suffering from the catastrophic effects of extreme disasters exacerbated by climate change — from prolonged drought in sub-Saharan Africa to devastating tropical storms sweeping across Southeast Asia, the Caribbean and small islands states.

We have arranged an online talk with lawyer and activist Angelique Pouponneau, who will offer her expertise on why the climate crisis is a human rights issue and tell us more about what activists in small island states such as the Seychelles are doing to stop it.

*This event will be live-streamed on YouTube and Facebook. It will be held in English without interpretation into Japanese. Please post your questions to our guest speakers in the comments section.
