George Mason University: Migration During Global Change

February 16, 2022

Climate change and extreme weather events are already forcing millions of people to move, but current migration laws were not designed with climate migration in mind. On this webinar, experts discussed how climate change creates migration, what steps the United States can take to respond to this new challenge, and how immigrants are part of the solution.

This event was co-sponsored by the Center for Climate Change Communication and the Institute for Sustainable Earth.
