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.
We have speakers who 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.
We hope you would be able to join us in coming together to advocate for climate justice and action in solidarity with people who need it most. The webinar outcomes will feed into the UN Climate Change Conference in October which will feed into the Glasgow COP26 in November.
A children’s art competition will be officially launched in the Youth Voices session of this webinar, with entries due by October 7th. Prizes will be awarded and entries exhibited in the global UN Climate Change Conference held in mid-October in the lead up to COP26 in Glasgow. Schools from across the Asia Pacific Region are invited to participate.
