“Prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with climate system
The South Durban Community Environmental Alliance (SDCEA) will be hosting Climate change provincial hearings on the 17th November 2017. This hearing will be running concurrent with the UNFCCC COP23 conference taking place in Bonn Germany. The theme for this year’s Conference of the Parties is ‘Prevent dangerous anthropogenic interference with climate system’. The world over is experiencing the most catrostophic climatic conditions ever seen for a long period of time. South Africa is not spared and has seen droughts with water shortages in parts of KZN and the Western Cape, Cyclones and massive storm damage we last witnessed in the late 80’s.
Those who bear the brunt of the changing conditions are not necessary the people responsible and yet suffer the most harm .The purpose of these hearings is to bring people together from all sectors of our society that are effected and affected by environmental injustice to give their own testimonies on the ongoing daily struggles they experience, To ensure that behind every climate crisis is a human face that can be seen and heard.
We will then deliberate a discussions that must lead to a statement coming out of this hearings that we seek as a possible solution on how we the world people need a another world that is sustainable, cares about the environment and puts its people first
This statement will be sent to all media. We encourage members of the public and organisations to attend.
Date: 17 November 2017, Friday
