Climate Crisis & Population Displacement: A Union & Civil Society Response

Climate Crisis & Population Displacement: A Union & Civil Society Response

  • NUT Conference Centre, Hamilton House


An average of 22.5 million people have been displaced each year by climate or weather-related disasters (for example floods, droughts or devastating storms) in the last seven years - equivalent to 62,000 people every day [1].  
 
On Human Rights Day we asked our supporters to stand up for the rights of climate refugees. Thank you to everyone who has signed so far – if you haven’t already please do sign the petition.
 
These climate refugees have no legal status in international law, leaving them vulnerable and unsupported. It’s clear we need a response to this so climate refugees aren’t left vulnerable and unsupported.
 
On 11 February we're co-hosting a conference in London to plan how we take this work forward. Please come and contribute to this crucial work.
 
Event: ‘Climate Refugees’- The Climate Crisis and Population Displacement: Building a Trade Union and Civil Society Response

When: Saturday 11 February

Where: NUT Conference Centre, Hamilton House, Mabledon Place, Euston, London, WC1H 9BD
 
The day will be a chance to:

  • learn more about the impact of climate change on migration,
  • dispel myths about refugees, and
  • develop our demands for stronger government leadership on this issue.

 

Find out more and book your tickets

 

We’d also be incredibly grateful if you could help promote this event. You can do this by sharing the conference with your networks, mailing lists and on social media:

Restart Party

Restart Party

  • London Fields West Side London, E8 United Kingdom

The popular party in the park is back again!  We will be alongside a local council "Give and Take" event.

If the last two parties in the park were anything to go by it will be a busy one!

Take back control of your e-stuff, never feel victim to obsolescence again.  We help you learn how to fix all kinds of devices, starting with troubleshooting, advising on spare parts if necessary and more.

Please don't leave it to the last minute - we may not have capacity to see you if you arrive in the last hour.  If we are busy we will only be able to deal with one item per person.  

Remember: we're happy to help you learn how to repair, we are not repair professionals, and Restart Parties are a community self-repair event. Please take responsibility for your own gadget, your own data, so do not forget to back-up your data.

Location: London Fields - inside the park near the entrance from Martello Street, E8 3PE (see map)

Time: 11am - 3pm
