Climate change and islands: Challenges and opportunities
May 25, 2016 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm BST
Small islands are said to be the places most threatened by climate change. Yet islands are diverse while islanders have survived and thrived in many communities for millennia. Is contemporary climate change really so different and devastating? What can we learn about climate change adaptation from other fields? This panel provides island and islander perspectives on dealing with climate change.
