On Sunday 10 April, in collaboration with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, there will be a special screening of the film Invisible Demons, about the impact of climate change on life in Delhi. Afterwards, an in-depth discussion will take place led by Marieke Eyskoot.
Personal and kaleidoscopic look at the way climate change is affecting Delhi. Unbearable heatwaves, water shortages and pollution hit everybody, but the poorest citizens the most. Visually stunning documentary, interspersed with eye-opening and touching accounts of some of Delhi’s 30 million everyday citizens, from rickshaw drivers to school girls.
A habitable planet means welfare for poor and rich, for men and women and for present and future generations. That is why the Ministry of Foreign Affairs commits itself to providing access to and sustainable usage of natural resources, for everyone. The Netherlands collaborates with different governments, multilateral institutions, NGO’s, companies and civilians to secure the provision of public goods such as raw materials, water and energy for the future. The most important guidelines in doing so are the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s), globally determined goals for sustainable development.
