Where Can They Go? A Climate Migration Panel
Alvin Johnson/J.M. Kaplan Hall, 66 West 12th Street, New York, NY 10011
BGIA, in collaboration with UNA-NY and The Zolberg Institute on Migration and Mobility at The New School, is excited to sponsor this special panel on climate migration issues.
6:00 pm – 7:30 pm EDT/GMT-4
The guest panelists will present local, national, and global endeavors that are currently underway, including the first Federally-funded climate migration effort in the United States: the relocation of the indigenous people of the Isle de Jean Charles. The conversation is an international one. The panelists will discuss how lessons are being learned, ideas exchanged, and how all of this is now forming the basis for ongoing policies and decisions.
