Climate Refugees: Award-Winning Documentary Screening

This event has passed.

Environmental refugees are now more prevalent than political refugees. Sea level rise, floods, droughts, desertification, famine, and other climate change impacts are forcing people across the globe to abandon their homelands and the lives they know, even when they have no clear destination.

By the middle of the 21st Century, experts predict that hundreds of millions of people will be displaced by climate events. Where will they go? How will their basic needs, like health and safety, be met? How should the international community respond? Political instability is almost guaranteed.

Filmed in 10 different countries, from Bangladesh to the Maldives, and featuring interviews with leading scientists, relief workers, security consultants, and major political figures, Climate Refugees sheds light on the human face of climate change.

Join us for a screening of Climate Refugees, a Sundance Film Festival selection. Light refreshments will be provided.
