International Roundtable on Climate Change in the Pacific, COAST 2020

Join us at the International Roundtable on Climate Change in the Pacific, organised by the Centre of Austronesian Studies, UCLan and Communities Fiji Britain, for Fijian 50 years Independence!

It aims to shed light on different conversations on the effect of climate change in the Asia Pacific, particularly within topics of climate migration, loss of culture and identity, and climate activism.

Climate change is having a detrimental impact on the lives of many Pacific peoples. This has been exacerbated by the COVID-19 pandemic which has resulted in a lack of media attention on climate change in the Pacific due to the continued reporting on the global spread of the virus. As such, it is important to consistently create space for continued discussion on climate change within the Pacific.

Date: 28th October 2020

Time: 9:00am-11:30am GMT

Location: Online (Microsoft Teams)
