The Climate Change Think Tank, established by New York University and the Unitarian Universalist United Nations Office, invites you to join its panel, “Small Island States: A New Endangered Species.”
Small Island States are at a significantly lower sea level than main land countries, so they are particularly vulnerable to changes in the climate like increases in temperature and rising sea levels. Not only do these changes affect the economy of these countries, they also have a direct effect on the citizens living in these nations.
Small island states deserve to be heard by a larger audience, which is why the UU-UNO and the CONGO Committee on Sustainable Development are sponsoring this event to give the Permanent Missions of Tuvalu and Maldives the opportunity to educate people at the UN and beyond about the effects of climate change in their homelands.
When: Wednesday, April 24th, 3:00pm-5:30pm
Where: UN Church Center, 777 UN Plaza, 2nd floor, New York, NY
