101: Loss and Damage – Why it matters for global south solidarity

At the UN’s climate conference, the face of the climate emergency is cloaked in the little known language of ‘loss and damage’, and usually totally avoided.
But people all around the world are losing their homes and their livelihoods. Avoidance and obfuscation has to end!
Come to this session hosted by the Robin Hood Tax Campaign UK – a conversation between Harjeet Singh and Sara Stillwell – to learn about what loss and damage is, the need for finance for countries facing it, and the process at the UNFCCC by which meaningful action has been avoided.
We’re about action! So the session will end with a menu of concrete things the audience can do to help pressure the UK government to take action on loss and damage.
