What is climate apartheid and where is it happening? What are the root causes? Who are climate privileged and who climate precarious people? How can we use Global Education to tackle those issues? How can we ensure the respect of human rights in the era of climate crisis? How to avoid climate change fatigue and stay solution oriented?
As a part of this year’s Global Education Week SLOGA Platform (Slovenia), Centre for peace studies (Croatia), and LAPAS (Latvia) would like to invite you to our online event “It's our Planet, let's take action together! Protecting Human Rights in Climate Crisis” on November 24, from 15:00 - 16:30 CEST.
Ms Tatjana Vlašić, deputy Ombudswoman from Croatia, explaining the interconnections of Human Rights and climate change with the special focus on defining and describing the term ‘climate apartheid’ will be joining us. Ms Lucija Tacer (Vice President of Youth Section of the UN Association of Slovenia and former UN Youth Delegate for Slovenia) will share the youth perspective and action taken by young people to wake up the global nation on climate crisis, showcasing that solutions and actions are happening. Ms Rita Skara-Mincāne, teacher from Latvia, will present how to mainstream the topic of the climate crisis in education to keep future generations prepared and alert.
The Global Education Week is a worldwide awareness raising campaign and a call to rethink our world together, using Global Education as a tool for solidarity and change, calling each of us to play our role as global citizens and contribute to a more sustainable and equitable world, by sharing solutions to rethink our habits and ways of living, but also finding new forms of education and socialisation.
