Presented by: UIC Latino Cultural Center


This documentary explores a new phenomenon in the global arena called “Climate Refugees.” A climate refugee is a person displaced by climatically induced environmental disasters. Such disasters result from incremental and rapid ecological change, resulting in increased droughts, desertification, and rising sea levels. All this is causing mass global migration and border conflicts. Climate Refugees will forever change the way you view the future of our planet.

  • Approx. 70 min.
