Chiara Liguori: Framing Climate Change as a Human Rights Issue. Why Is It So Important?
Talk given by Chiara Liguori on Framing Climate Change as a Human Rights Issue - why is it so important? at the Advaya event Climate Justice: Rights for People & Planet on 28 February 2019.
About the event:
Climate change revolves around a question of global inequality and demonstrates the mass destruction fuelled by our consumerist growth economy. This was an evening of talks, panels, food, drinks, music and spoken-word exploring the human rights implications of the environmental crisis. We explored ecocide, globalisation, the growth-based economy, extreme energy, corporatisation, public health, and much more.
