We regret to inform you that due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the EESC has decided to cancel all public events until 22 March as a precautionary measure.
The event about climate refugees will therefore take place without audience and you are invited to listen to the speakers via our online web-streaming on 11 March.


The event about environmental migration aims to provide an understanding of the challenges at hand and their impact, as well as proposing policy solutions. It will present projections for climate change and how this will force people to migrate, seek to define environmental displacement, paying attention to its current occurrence and providing estimates on its future. Emphasis will be on the legal protection gap, as environmental refugees are currently not covered by any international law.
