United Nations Human Rights and CU Boulder are co-hosting the Right Here, Right Now Global Climate Summit Dec. 1–4, a multi-day summit addressing the interconnectedness of human rights and climate change.
From rising sea levels, extreme weather events, wildfires and droughts, to food insecurity, health impacts, mass migrations and increasing global conflict, there is no denying climate change is a humanitarian crisis. By gathering some of the world's foremost human rights, scientific, political, educational, cultural and industry leaders, we hope together we can commit to specific outcomes that will address the adverse effects of climate change on human rights.
