Pacific Stream: Community Narratives of Climate Change is an interactive panel featuring the voices of South Pacific Islanders on the relationships between climate change, community displacement and Indigenous knowledge.
The event will take place on the 16th of May, 4:30pm at David Lam Auditorium, MacLaurin Building. University of Victoria.
The event is also being live streamed! If you can’t attend in person, check out the live stream here: https://www.youtube.com/
With Pacific Islanders widely portrayed as the first climate refugees, our panelists will unpack the disconnect between community based and global narratives of climate change, and how the climate refugee narrative interacts with Indigenous identities and histories of Pacific Islanders.
Chair: Eli Enns. Panelists include Selwyn Toa (Vanuatu), Eugene Lee (Borneo) and Mikaele Maiava (Samoa).
