With clear benefits to people and natural ecosystems, limiting global warming to 1.5°C compared to 2°C could go hand-in-hand with ensuring a more sustainable and equitable society.

Changing the narrative: This inaugural World Forum on Climate Justice will bring together leading civil society groups, academics, business representatives, members of the public, and policymakers to foster new thinking and explore pressing topics in climate justice advocacy, research, policy and practice as we adapt to reach the 1.5°C goal.

The conference will take place at Glasgow Caledonian University from the 19th – 21st June 2019.
