CCAN Presents: Climate Change and the Refugee Crisis

June 29, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Join CCAN’s very own communications director, Denise Robbins, for a reception and discussion about her new book, Rising Tides: Climate Refugees in the 21st Century.

Rising Tides sounds an urgent wakeup call to the growing crisis of climate refugees, and offers an essential, continent-by-continent look at these dangers. The crisis is everywhere and it is imminent. Detailing a number of solutions, co-authors John R. Wennersten and Denise Robbins argue that no nation can tackle this universal problem alone. The crisis of climate refugees requires global, concerted solutions beyond the strategic, fiscal, and legal capability of a single country or agency.

Come listen, eat free snacks, and and learn about both the practical and political considerations to climate-driven migration. Allow this book to fully open your eyes to the enormity of the problem as well as equip us all with solutions.
