Climate Refugees and Arizona's Future

NAZCCA and Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) will feature a second installment of a continuing presentation and discussion on the impacts of the climate crisis. Please join us for "Climate Refugees and Arizona's Future" by Stefan Sommer.

Climate Change is already affecting human well-being in almost all parts of the Earth and certainly here in Arizona as well. Smaller climate pressures like rising temperatures have already lead to large numbers of climate migrants and larger climate pressures are now also leading to more and more climate refugees in our region. Current pressures and future projections will be discussed.

Dr. Stefan Sommer is Director of Education at the Merriam Powell Center for Environmental Research at Northern Arizona University. His doctoral work is in ecological sustainability and he has studied effective communication across cultural boundaries in many contexts including PBS film production.
