Friday 19 July

11 June 2024, Johannesburg – Join SECTION27 for a webinar launch of our latest report, “Climate Change as a Human Rights Risk: A Resource for Health and Education Rights Activists in South Africa,” on 19 June 2024. The report, launched in Youth Month, sheds light on the intersection between climate change and children’s rights, focusing on access to healthcare, basic education, gender equality, and budget justice. As climate change intensifies, vulnerable groups such as children and young people become more vulnerable to its effects, such as extreme weather events, environmental degradation, and socioeconomic disruptions. 

The report explores the role of climate financing and budgeting in redressing climate change impacts and delves into the pillars of climate action. The report explores the current state of children’s rights in the context of climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts and explores policies aimed at safeguarding children’s rights in a changing climate. 

Join us for a webinar launch featuring presentations from the report authors and an expert panel discussion to further explore the key themes and necessary action.
