The United Nations presents: Anote's Ark

On 20 March, Ciné-ONU will screen ‘Anote’s Ark’ to highlight the UN Secretary-General's priority focus on climate action.

Anotes Ark CineONU

The Pacific Island nation of Kiribati is one of the most remote places on the planet, seemingly far-removed from the pressures of modern life. Yet it is one of the first countries that must confront the main existential dilemma of our time: imminent annihilation from sea-level rise. While Kiribati’s President Anote Tong races to find a way to protect his nation’s people and maintain their dignity, many Kiribati are already seeking safe harbour overseas.

The screening will be followed by a conversation with guest speakers: Anuna de Wever, Belgian Activist, Youth for Climate; Thierry Lucas, Acting Head, Brussels Office, UNEP; Rachel Simons, Climate and Development Policy Coordinator, CAN Europe; moderated by Petra Hongell, UNRIC.
