Managing the Planet: Climate migrants
November 13, 2019 @ 5:00 pm - 6:30 pm
Climate migrants: how climate change is shifting the global demographic
Join us for a panel discussion on the intersection between climate change and human, plant and animal migration patterns. There is growing realization among researchers, policy makers, and the wider public that the impacts of climate change will have a large effect on global migration patterns in the coming decades. While Migration is an adaptation strategy for humans and certain animals that follow their habitats, these shifts are slower for plants and for those that have nowhere left to go. According to the report, Groundswell – Preparing for Internal Climate Migration, climate migration will likely rise through 2050 and then accelerate; the challenges are certain, but what are the opportunities if we act now?
Our CSU panelists will discuss how climate change is shifting the global demographic of humans, plants and animals.
