The Margins of the Sea Preview Summit Peace. Global Understanding. Climate Change

About this Event

In partnership with the International Writing Program at University of Iowa, Liljestrand Foundation is pleased to announce the preview of an annual series of international summits that value peace, greater global awareness and environmental stewardship from the perspective of arts and culture.

We hope you will join us for a panel presentation on Climate Change & Social Justice.

The panel will focus on climate change crises and solutions. It will include excerpts from Redford’s award-winning film, Happenings: A Clean Energy Revolution, as well as visual examples of the impact of climate change on world migration. Highlights of the Institute of Climate and Peace’s work to advance peace, greater diversity of ideas and achievable actions will also be shared. One panelist noted: Worse than climate denial is climate despondency!
