About this event

Cli­mate change has made mil­lions vul­ner­a­ble to mod­ern slav­ery. Dis­place­ment and migra­tion because of cli­mate change cre­ates a nexus of harm that push­es peo­ple to accept work that active­ly con­tributes to envi­ron­men­tal destruc­tion of forests, fish­eries, water­ways and land. Weak reg­u­la­tion and enforce­ment, cor­rup­tion, a lack of polit­i­cal will and the lure of prof­its com­bined with vul­ner­a­bil­i­ty of peo­ple cre­ates a vicious cir­cle of oppor­tu­ni­ty for forced labour, child labour, debt bondage and slavery.

Address­ing UN Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goal (SDG) 8.7 to end mod­ern slav­ery, and the envi­ron­men­tal SDGs, will require those with exper­tise in mod­ern slav­ery and the envi­ron­ment to urgent­ly com­bine their efforts.

Join our speak­ers to explore how an inte­grat­ed approach to address­ing mod­ern slav­ery, cli­mate change and envi­ron­men­tal destruc­tion can lead to impact­ful inter­ven­tions by gov­ern­ments, com­mu­ni­ties, work­ers and busi­ness. Reg­is­ter to receive a link to the recording.

Facil­i­tat­ed by: Dr Mar­ti­jn Boers­ma, Asso­ciate Pro­fes­sor of Mod­ern Slav­ery and Human Traf­fick­ing at Uni­ver­si­ty of Notre Dame Australia
