Climate Diplomacy week also known as #ClimaDiplo week is part of a worldwide campaign to inform on the European Union's climate action policy. We hope you can join us at one of our public and free activities.

Two films will be screening as part of the EU's climate action policy in June in Adelaide, Canberra and Melbourne. Both will look at climate change, one from the impact of rising sea levels leading to population displacement and the second on the potential consequence of violence due to natural disasters. 

Documentary 'Thirty Million' portrays Bangladesh one of the most vulnerable countries in the world which risks losing 17 percent of its territory in the next 80 years due to sea level rise. The potential displacement of 30 million people is at stake. The film is financed by the United Naitons Development Porgramme - UNDP and co-directed by British climate scientist Dr Daniel Price and New Zealand TV journalist Adrien Taylor.

The second film presented by the EU in Australia is "The Age of Consequences", a documentary looking at the impact of climate change on increased resource scarcity and migration though the lens of national security and global stability.
