SCELG @COP26 Climate-Related Conflict: Arts-Based Mediation and Recourse to Redress

When: 10th November, 2:30 – 5:00PM

Where: Level 3 of the new Learning & Teaching Building, TL328, University of Strathclyde.

The event is organised by the One Ocean Hub, the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance, and the Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF).

A short animation film titled Indlela yokuphila (“The soul’s journey”) made by artists, traditional healers, marine sociologists, and deep-sea marine ecologists from South Africa will be screened at the event. It will be followed by a discussion of the One Ocean Hub’s findings on how to use art-based mediation in climate-related conflict and the role of small-scale fishers as environmental human rights defenders. The IRM will present different avenues through which the IRM provides recourse to complaints arising from the adverse impacts of GCF projects and programmes.
