The Amnesty-ANU Eminent Speakers series is back! Join ANU Law Reform and Social Justice (LRSJ) and Amnesty International in this discussion on climate change and human rights at COP26.
At the end of October 2021, the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) will convene in Glasgow in what the hosts describe as “the world’s best last chance to get runaway climate change under control”.
Climate change represents one of the greatest threats to human rights of our generation. What is decided at COP26, and what countries do or fail to do in the years ahead, is therefore of critical importance. In this panel discussion, we will discuss Indigenous rights, climate change displacement, youth activism and strategic litigation.
On the panel:
- Tony McAvoy, Australia’s first Indigenous Senior Counsel
- Sanjula Weerasinghe, independent consultant
- Annika Reynolds, CEO and founder of GreenLaw
- Folole Tupuola, Pacific Climate Warriors coordinator
Peta Bulling, a Bachelor of Environmental Studies/Laws (Hons) student at ANU and project lead at GreenLaw, will moderate the session.
