Our climate is changing at an unprecedented pace. Rising sea-levels, floods and droughts and dramatic loss of the cryosphere in the Arctic and Antarctica will affect everyone on the planet. Yet Indigenous Peoples, as well as many poorer countries with lower carbon outputs, will be impacted more than others. One of the key ways of addressing climate injustice is with a concerted and collaborative global conversation. Join Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Council, Dalee Sambo Dorough and Namibian youth advocate for sustainable development, Deon Shekuza as they explore effective climate justice. This event is chaired by Paul Ekins, Director of the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources.

Part of the public programme accompanying the Citi exhibition Arctic: culture and climate at the British Museum (22 October 2020–21 February 2021).
