Event details

In the past few years, the climate crisis has started to play a more prominent role in public discourse. However, there are still too many aspects that are not talked about enough. We want to address this topic with an information campaign as a part of the "When the climate crisis takes your home - Art Competition" project.

This workshop aims to shed some light on one of them: migration and flight caused by the climate crisis. The workshop will be held in Cooperation between us and the NPO-Frauennetzwerk and aims to answer the following questions and more:

  • What are the consequences of the climate crisis, especially in the poorest regions of the world?
  • What does this mean for the people living there, and what other obstacles do those people face?
  • How are women in particular impacted by climate related migration?

On the occasion of our workshop, Dr. Andrea Barschdorf-Hager, the director of the human aid organisation CARE will speak on the topic of gender and climate-related migration.

We are looking forward to seeing you at the event. The event will be hosted online via Zoom.
