Migrant Justice = Climate Justice

Good Chance and guests explore the joint issues of migrant justice and climate justice in this special event.

The climate crisis is forcing people to move, and it will force millions more to move in the future. The issue of safe passage is an urgent one.

Little Amal, a young refugee and 3.5m high puppet, has just completed a remarkable 8000km journey – The Walk, produced by Good Chance Theatre in association with Handspring Puppet Company.

Along the way, Amal met with refugees like her, many affected directly by the consequences of the climate crisis. As borders are raised, how should we respond to this growing need to move to find safety?

In the heart of COP26, Good Chance Theatre will chair a discussion with:

  • Onjali Rauf, author of Sunday Times bestselling children’s book, The Boy at the Back of the Class, and founder and CEO of Making Herstory and O’s Refugee Aid Team
  • Kim Bryan, Director of Communications at international climate organisation 350.org
  • Josie Naughton, CEO of global refugee support organisation Choose Love
  • A Connect4Climate young leader discussing the outcomes of the recent Pre-COP26 Youth4Climate summit
  • A panellist from The Global Youth Climate Inquiry, an initiative of One Young World, Mishcon de Reya LLP and the Democracy and Culture Foundation

Together they will explore the intersections of climate, migration and the urgent need to shape new narratives for our changing future.

In partnership with 350.org, Choose Love, Connect4Climate – World Bank Group, One Young World, Mishcon de Reya LLP, Democracy and Culture Foundation
