The challenge of saving civilization is revealed in this vital documentary that shows the human face of climate change and the impact it has on the national security of countries running out of food and water due to vast droughts and climatic shifts.
Climate Refugees travels the world, interviewing several of the 25 million climate refugees now on the run, along with scholars and politicians, including John Kerry, Newt Gingrich, Al Gore, and activist and Nobel Prize winner Wangari Maathai, bringing to light the heart-wrenching truth of what is quickly becoming mankind's greatest challenge.
The film will be preceded by short film Footprint Modulation: Human Migration and the Environment by Kooj Chuhan/Metaceptive Media'.
Join us after the screening for a special panel discussion with;
- Filmmaker and artist Kooj Chuhan, whose recent films have focused on climate-linked migration
- Professor Tahseen Jafry, whose work in Glasgow focuses on climate and international development aid
- Durham University-based Professor Andrew Baldwin, one of the world’s leading academics on climate change and migration.
