The economies and populations that are the main contributors to the climate crisis are least affected by the consequences. People in the Global South are already exposed to drought, forest fires, flooding and water shortages. According to the UN, there were some 270 million migrants worldwide in 2020. Recent forecasts predict that the climate crisis will force up to 1.2 billion people to leave their home countries by 2050.
How does the outside world view Europe and which expectations does this view give rise to? Which role and responsibility does Europe have? Which significance do cities and regions have? How can common and coordinated approaches be developed to ensure that human dignity is protected in global migration movements, in particular in those involving refugees?
A Zoom link will be sent to registered participants close to the event.
The webtalk series 'Totally Glocally. Europe from the outside: Dealing with the climate crisis' is a cooperation event with Ecologic Institute and Climate Alliance.
