Loss and Damage Awareness Day Film Launch and Webinar – 23 September 2021
This is Loss & Damage: hurricanes, floods, forest fires – destroying homes and livelihoods around the world, particularly in poorest countries. Governments have been in endless talks, but have failed to act. This must change. Join us for the launch of a powerful, short film “This is Loss and Damage – Who Pays?” – narrated by well-known, film actor, Mark Strong – where a solution is proposed.
Featuring inspirational climate activist, Vanessa Nakate, and Loss and Damage experts, Professor Saleem Huq and Harjeet Singh, the film offers a compelling way out of the Loss and Damage finance stalemate: an international mechanism funded by the fossil fuel polluters who caused the crisis.
The film explores the injustice of Loss and Damage, rooting it firmly in the shameful failure of countries with the largest carbon footprints – 5 years on from the Paris Agreement – to provide support to those at the sharp end of the climate crisis.
Join us for the film’s premiere followed by a discussion with Green Party MP, Caroline Lucas, alongside the climate activists in the film – Vanessa, Saleem and Harjeet – about how finance for Loss and Damage will be a metric for the success or failure of the COP26 climate conference, in Glasgow, in November.
