Should climate change policies incorporate human rights principles? 

The effects of climate change potentially threaten a broad range of internationally accepted human rights, such as the right to food, shelter, and work. Some of the policies designed to address climate change will likely have a detrimental impact on human rights, particularly of those who are disadvantaged.

This session will explore these impacts and consider why climate change policies should incorporate human rights principles.

Speakers announced soon.


 In Conversation: Human Rights

In Conversation is a monthly series of thought-provoking topics exploring big questions, ideas and human narratives. Curated in collaboration with The Museum of Freedom and Tolerance (MFT), this series brings human rights stories to the foreground.

The eight-part discussion explores a range of contemporary human rights issues through stories of resilience and action, shining a spotlight on overcoming prejudices in the face of persistent challenges and slow progress. It asks the question, how do human rights affect us in our daily lives, and how can we better acknowledge our responsibilities in balancing any given right with the rights of others?
