As a key part of a more equitable and just future, climate justice is growing in importance across the world, and nowhere more so than in countries that are affected by climate change and rising sea levels the most. That is why Just Peace The Hague and Hague Talks are organising a special event on environmental justice on Monday 5 June as part of The Hague Justice Week.
In collaboration with Movies that Matter, Just Peace The Hague and Hague Talks will be screening the film Anote’s Ark by Matthieu Ritz: which tells the story of the nation of Kiribati, which is being drastically affected by climate change. The film shows the struggle of Kiribati’s president, Anote Tong, against the backdrop of UN climate negotiations in Paris. This is dramatically strung through a telling of the personal story of Tiemeri, a mother of six who is trying everything she can to ensure that she and her family can move to safety in New Zealand.
The film screening will be followed by a special Hague Talks and discussion where we will delve into the topic of ecocide, environmental justice, and how Mozambique and its Chief Justice is working to secure a more just future for its people.
The event aligns with the overall theme of The Hague Justice Week 2023 , which is to promote and discuss justice and human rights on different scales. By focusing on environmental justice, the event highlights the critical role that the law plays in protecting the environment and ensuring that justice is served for both people and the planet.
