What is the relation between Human Rights and Climate Change?
Film screening followed by a joint reflective activity

With Human Rights Day coming up on December 10, we invite you to join us and watch a solemn, beautiful and eye-opening film about the effects of climate change, on human life and human rights: Luzzu.

You will also get the chance to participate in an engaging and reflective activity following the film – which will involve sharing your thoughts on the film and connecting the dots between climate change and human rights.

Global capitalism and corruption impacts not only life in our oceans, but also the quality of the lives of local fishermen and their families.
