Round Table Discussion: Climate Change: Disrupting Lives, Lands, and Communities Around the World

April 5 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

Free

The climate around the world is changing, contributing to droughts, floods, sea-level rise, and extreme weather events. In some nations, water and food shortages have been linked to political instability and forced migration. Some recent immigrants to Maine have left their homelands because of such instability. Hearing their perspectives helps all of us better understand the long-term impacts of climate change as anĀ unfolding environmental and humanitarian crises. Join us for a roundtable discussion with Lt. Gen. Castellaw and new Mainers from Burundi, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and Zambia who have perspectives to share about how climate change is impacting their homelands.
