Climate Justice Map Training: Understanding the Climate Justice – Just Transition Landscape
Blue Zone, Thematic Zone 1 Entertainment + Culture Pavilion (Listed under Climate Generation B7 90 in the UNFCCC Venue Map)
Join us for an interactive training session of the Climate Justice Map to learn who is leading intersectional work on the front lines of climate injustice. With a focus on climate storytelling, this event will spotlight those who are on the ground working to achieve climate justice in their communities and will share the human-centred stories behind the data.
Stories from the front lines, hear from Umesh Balal Magar, Youth Program Manager at Nepal Water Conservation Foundation. Umesh will highlight the indigenous and disability led organisations across Asia and the Pacific and tell the story of their own organisation and the work they are doing to centre the voices of the disability community at COP28.
