Event description

Description

Melting glaciers, droughts, rising sea levels - these are just some of the environmetal disruptions that are likely to worsen with climate change. UNHCR, the UN Refugee Agency, says that an annual average of 21.5 million people have been forcibly displaced by weather-related sudden onset hazards – such as floods, storms, wildfires, extreme temperature – each year since 2008. But is it global warming or just the weather?

Join upcoming meeting of The Economist Club on Climate Change to discuss this issue, how does it affect us and how to adapt.
Date: Sept 21st, 19:15
Venue: Salon Number 10 (Arbuthnot Road, 10, Central)

It's free to participate, but we would order a drink as a courtesy to the venue.

Format
First we meet and introduce to each other. Then depending how many people are joining, we split into sub-groups of three-five people for discussion on the topic. One from the group begins by introducing key points from suggested article (i.e. what she/he remembers, was impressed by), others add and follow conversation flow. Questions, new paths for discussions, personal experience, and opinions are highly encouraged. The event will be concluded with sharing your personal insights and take-aways to the whole group.
This is an unformal gathering, you are free to leave any time you like, yet with respect other people opinion. We aim to start before 19:30 finish by 20:30.
