Climate Migration: International Pressures, Local Realities
June 4 @ 8:00 am - 11:00 am MDT
Global migration in response to climate impacts is beginning to accelerate. In fact, according to a recent model by the New York Times and ProPublica, migration increases substantially as the climate changes. Migrants move for many reasons and our domestic and international policies have a big influence on not only how livable other countries remain in the face of climate change but how well migrants are able to join life in the United States. Join the Climate Adaptation Forum for a conversation about migration – both international and internal. Hear from municipalities that are building infrastructure to welcome new residents and from experts at the international scale who are grappling with broad issues of displacement and migration.
