Climate Refugees, Environmental Justice and Clean Energy

Climate Refugees, Environmental Justice and Clean Energy

22 Sep 2018

Interested in the link between climate, justice and energy? 
Looking for options to contribute to a more sustainable city?
Acting locally for justice globally?

The Hague wants to be an international city for justice and peace. Global warming could increase risks of climate migration and conflict. How can (international) residents of The Hague respond to these risks? The Hague Earth Embassy wants to explore possible answers together with local clean energy initiatives and environmental refugees.
