We Need To Talk: Changing Climate, Changing Conflicts
15 September, 3:30-4:30 pm
This event featured Andrew Gilmour, Executive Director of the Berghof Foundation, and Janani Vivekananda, Senior Advisor at adelphi, in an intimate fireside chat. Moderated by renowned mediator and former diplomat Günther Baechler, they discussed why and how climate change and environmental considerations should be an integral part of conflict analysis and peacebuilding processes. The speakers’ vast experiences seeing first-hand the effects of climate change on conflict dynamics around the world allowed for an interesting and lively discussion about climate change in peacebuilding.
After the 30-minute conversation, the audience was invited to participate in a live Twitter chat with the speakers to ask questions and actively engage in a joint discussion. You can find this conversation using the #BCSC2020.
