Just Peace Movie Night x Hague Talks

  • Date: 05 June 18:00 - 21:30
  • Location: The Hague Humanity Hub

Join The Hague Humanity Hub on June 5 for a special Just Peace Movie Night as part of Hague Justice Week on environmental justice with Just Peace The Hague and Hague Talks. 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.

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.
