What life is like for small island communities?

Our climate is changing, impacting on the lives and livelihoods of people across the planet. But who is being affected and why? Join us for an insightful discussion on how people are affected and coping with these impacts, how island communities are being supported, how they relate to us here in Scotland and our island communities, and have your say on these issues.

 

An international discussion

Hosted by The Glasgow Science Centre, The Royal Society of Edinburgh (International Programme) and the Centre for Climate Justice at Glasgow Caledonian University have partnered to bring together voices from local communities and high-level representatives from the Alliance of Small Island Developing States (AOSIS), São Tomé and Príncipe and Scottish islands.

Join us online and see for yourself what life is like for small island communities, for a lively conversation and Q&A.
