Join Just Peace The Hague and Hague talks for a special joint event on environmental justice as part of Hague Justice Week As a key part of a more equitable and just future, climate justice is growing in importance across the world, and nowhere more so than in countries that are affected by climate change and rising sea levels the most.

So, in collaboration with Movies that Matter, we will be screening the film Anote’s Ark by Matthieu Ritz: which tells the story of the nation of Kiribati, which is being drastically affected by climate change. The film shows the struggle of Kiribati’s president, Ton, against the backdrop of UN climate negotiations in Paris. This is dramatically strung through a telling of the personal story of Tiemeri, a mother of six who is trying everything she can to ensure that she and her family can move to safety in New Zealand.

The film screening will be followed by a special Hague Talks and discussion where we will delve into the topic of ecocide, environmental justice, and how Mozambique and its Chief Justice is working to secure a more just future for its people.

About the speakers:

Jojo Mehta, a Co-Founder and Executive Director of Stop Ecocide International. Jojo has been at the forefront of the movement to establish ecocide as a crime at the International Criminal Court. Her extensive experience in coordinating legal developments, diplomatic traction, and public narrative, coupled with her clear and engaging communication style, make her an inspiring and knowledgeable speaker to address the pressing issue of environmental justice.

Mert Kumru is an avid campaigner for World Youth for Climate Justice here in Europe. Now that climate justice is becoming a much more broadly accepted term, Mert offers us the opportunity to learn more about seeking justice for those affected by climate change.

Ida Simonsen will moderate the event. Ida is a farmer in training, agroecology activist, and Dutch UN Youth Representative on Biodiversity and Food. She is primarily active at the intersection of environmental justice, human rights and agrarian transformation with a focus on democratisation and youth participation.

The event aligns with the overall theme of The Hague Justice Week 2023 , which is to promote and discuss justice and human rights on different scales. By focusing on environmental justice, the event highlights the critical role that the law plays in protecting the environment and ensuring that justice is served for both people and the planet.
