How will people, forced to leave their homes by climate change, take part in our growing knowledge economy?

We know that the global warming crisis will lead to future-defining human migration. Australia may soon welcome many new migrants – so how can we harness this talent for the wellbeing of all?

Usman Iftikhar from Catalysr, a startup incubator program for migrants and refugees, reveals the potential new migrants hold in building a better future. Join Usman as he explains the concept of climate migration and discusses policies and collaborations that can ensure migrants and refugees thrive in Australia. Explore how we can create a fertile environment for the diverse perspectives, cultural backgrounds and other valuable assets offered by global professionals.
