We're living in the era of extreme carbon inequality. The world's poorest 3.5 billion people have the lowest carbon emissions but are most affected by climate impacts. Young people have done little to cause the crisis, yet are inheriting an increasingly dangerous planet.
As we move into recovery from Covid-19, we need far-reaching and ambitious action against the twin inequality and climate crises. If we come together, we can use this unprecedented moment to push for change.
During New York Climate Week and on the youth climate global day of action, join us for a frank and solutions-focused discussion on confronting carbon inequality with
- BAN KI-MOON, Deputy Chair of The Elders and former UN Secretary General;
- HINDOU OUMAROU IBRAHIMA, environmental activist and President of the Association for Indigenous Women and Peoples of Chad
- SHARAN BURROW, General Secretary of ITUC
- Hilda Flavia Nakabuye Climate rights activist and founder of Uganda's Fridays for Future movement; champions the voices of those experiencing climate impacts, in Africa and on the global stage
The discussion will be chaired by Amitabh Behar, Chief Executive Officer of Oxfam India.
Oxfam is a global movement of people, working together to end the injustice of poverty. That means we tackle the inequality that keeps people poor. Together, we save, protect and rebuild lives when disaster strikes. We help people build better lives for themselves, and for others. we take on issues like land rights, climate change and discrimination against women. And we won’t stop until every person on the planet can enjoy life free from poverty.
The event will be a panel discussion including space for questions and is open to all.
