IREJN and the Hartford International University for Religion and Peace will present a 90 minute webinar on Thursday, February 3 from 7:00 pm – 8:30 pm on the intersection of climate change and migration. We will focus on how climate change exacerbates both conflict and hunger crises, creating both internal migration and immigration.
