STAND STUDENT FESTIVAL

12th-24th October 2020

 

 

This year’s theme is ‘climate migration’

Over two weeks in October 2020, STAND are inviting third level students across Ireland to join us for a series of free online events that will raise awareness on the issue of climate enforced migration and why we should care about it in Ireland

Let’s talk about climate migration

A space where climate change and social justice issues collide

 

Climate migrants, a subset of migrants not yet formally recognised as refugees, are people who have been forced to flee due to sudden or gradual alterations in the natural environment that makes their homelands uninhabitable. 

The most common reasons climate migrants seek refuge in other countries are:

Sea-level rise

Extreme weather events

Drought and water scarcity

No. of millions expected to live below high-tide lines by 2050

No. of millions of people who are at-risk of being displaced as a result of drought by 2030

No. of Small Island Developing states at risk of disappearing

HOW CAN YOU GET INVOLVED?

There are tonnes of ways to get involved with the STAND Student Festival
