A round-table discussion featuring New Mainers from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Zambia
Thursday, April 5, 2018
3:00 p.m. – 4:30 p.m.
The climate around the world is changing, contributing to droughts, floods, sea-level rise, and extreme weather events. In some nations, water and food shortages have been linked to political instability and forced migration. Some recent immigrants to Maine have left their homelands because of such instability. Hearing their perspectives helps all of us better understand the long-term impacts of climate change, as unfolding environmental and humanitarian crises.
Join us for a roundtable discussion with Lt. General Castellaw and Esther Babson of the American Security Project and New Mainers from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Zambia who have perspectives to share about how climate change is impacting their homelands.
Co-sponsored by the Natural Resources Council of Maine, American Security Project, and the World Affairs Council of Maine.
