Summary Environmental Justice Foundation video streams viewpoints

Taking the widely quoted figure that there could be an estimated 150 million people forced from their homes and land by climate change by 2050, this event brings together ideas from Heads of State, philosophers, explorers, scientists, lawyers, actors and experts in their field to discuss the potential cultural, emotional and physical impacts of forced migration, who should be responsible and what the potential options are for dealing with the impending human rights crisis.

For millions of people around the world, a degraded natural environment means hunger and brutal poverty that costs lives.

By providing film and advocacy training to partners in the global south EJF protects the natural environment and the people and wildlife that depend upon it by empowering local communities to investigate, expose and peacefully resolve abuses.

EJF campaigns internationally on the issues our grassroots partners work locally to solve including cotton production, pirate fishing, shrimp farming, pesticides, wildlife and climate refugees.
