Join the Program on Negotiation for a screening of “Climate Refugees” and a discussion with writer/director Michael Nash.
This award-winning and acclaimed documentary film highlights for the first time a new phenomenon in the global arena – climate refugees, individuals displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters and rapid ecological change. This mass environmental migration is a threat to global security.
Following the film, director Michael Nash will discuss his work and the urgent issues highlighted in the film. “Climate Refugees” has been shown around the world to heads of state and other leaders and in the United States at the Pentagon, Congress, and the United Nations. “Climate Refugees” was the only film screened by the United Nations at the IIEA Copenhagen Climate Change Conference and at Davos for world leaders. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival, where Robert Redford described it as “an agent for social change”.
