CLIMATE CHANGE, the reality we face: Global warming, Arctic and Antarctic ice melting, Glaciers melting, rising sea levels, Ocean acidification, coral bleaching, Climate Refugees and mass Migrations, eroding soils and land Desertification, food security, poorer communities and water shortages, extreme weather, flooding and droughts. At this event we will address these issues. We will also address Marine pollution during the evening. 
We will watch a short UNESCO film and documentary showing some of these catastrophic consequences for the environment, local communities, societies and economies. We will watch real testimonies of people from different parts of the World being affected by Climate Change. These global risks do not respect national borders, the entire global climate is in jeopardy.But there is HOPE.... with a holistic approach to CLIMATE ACTIONWe will have Regional and Local updates and presentations of important Projects and Campaigns addressing these very issues and how all of us can get involved and keep generating Climate Action. Join the discussion!!
