The Age of Consequences: Climate Change Risks to Conflict and Security
- Starts: 6:00 pm on Tuesday, May 14, 2019
- Ends: 9:00 pm on Tuesday, May 14, 2019
Join New England International Donors and the Pardee School for a special screening of the Age of Consequences, a documentary that investigates the impacts of climate change on increased resource scarcity, migration, and conflict through the lens of US national security and global stability.
Through unflinching case-study analysis, distinguished admirals, generals and military veterans take us beyond the headlines of the conflict in Syria, the social unrest of the Arab Spring, the rise of radicalized groups like ISIS, and the European refugee crisis – and lay bare how climate change stressors interact with societal tensions, sparking conflict.
Whether a long-term vulnerability or sudden shock, the film unpacks how water and food shortages, drought, extreme weather, and sea-level rise function as ‘accelerants of instability’ and ‘catalysts for conflict’ in volatile regions of the world.
The movie is approximately 1 hour and 20 minutes long and will be followed by a discussion on how donors can fund and engage at the intersections of climate change, health, and migration.
Speakers will include Pardee School Dean Adil Najam and Sophie Robinson Executive Producer and Director of Outreach at PF Pictures.
This event is by invitation only.
