Human Rights and Climate Change Conference

October 11, 2019

$50.00

“In the world we dream of, all are welcome, all belong.”

Friends of the Earth Climate Frontlines, The University of Queensland’s Human Rights Consortium, the Pacific Islands Council of Queensland and Pacific Climate Warriors 350 invite you to be part of our one-day human rights and climate change conference.

This one-day event will bring together speakers from across Australia and the Pacific to identify the specific human rights, including Indigenous rights, challenged by the climate crisis. It will also create a forum for strategic alliance building across NGOs, researchers and community organisations to support on-going rights based climate campaigning, research and education.

Friday, 11 October 2019 from 8:45 am to 8:30 pm (AEST).    We’d like to welcome you to join us for this event.

Our conference will include key note addresses from Dr Anne Poelina – Nyikina Warrwa Traditional Custodian from the Mardoowarra, Tony McAvoy SC – Australia’s first Indigenous Senior Counsel, and Genevieve Jiva, coordinator Pacific Islands Climate Action Network.

It will also include panel sessions and round table discussions on:

  • the right to a healthy environment: what’s under threat?
  • displacement, migration and re-settlement
  • opportunities for climate litigation
  • youth and climate change
  • community leadership and involvement in planning for climate change
  • gender, rights and climate change
