Thursday 9 March from 6:30pm to 7:30pm

Gaia Vince | Jane McAdam | Ben Doherty

Floods, fires, drought and disasters are already displacing more people globally than conflict.

The climate emergency is destroying crops, homes and infrastructure and as the world heats over the coming decades whole cities may become unliveable, forcing populations to move in their tens of millions. How can we manage this unprecedented human movement to achieve productive, sustainable societies this century?

Proposals range from the already real to the politically radical – such as global free movement, ‘caretaker states’, repurposed cities, and migration authorities with real power. Will we choose to invest in productive, pragmatic plans for the coming climate and demographic changes, or find ourselves forced to improvise in an acute crisis?

Join award-winning science writer and the author of Nomad Century: How Climate Migration Will Reshape Our World Gaia Vince, for a keynote talk and followed by a conversation with Guardian Australia’s immigration reporter Ben Doherty and Director of the Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law Jane McAdam about how climate change will how climate migration will reshape our world.

This event is presented by the UNSW Centre for Ideas and supported by the Kaldor Centre for International Refugee Law and _Adelaide Writers’ We_ek.
