In support of EU Climate Diplomacy Week, the EU Centre for Global Affairs and the Hawke EU Centre held a cocktail reception and hosted a screening of the documentary, The Age of Consequences (watch the official trailer below). The screening was followed by an in-depth moderated panel discussion and audience interaction.
The event was opened by H.E. Tom Nørring, Ambassador of Denmark to Australia, and the Hon Ian Hunter MLC, Minister SA for Climate Change, Sustainability, Environment & Conservation, Water and the River Murray.
The Age of Consequences details the current consequences the world is facing due to environmental degradation and climate change. Through the lens of national security and global instability, the film focuses on issues such as resource scarcity, poverty and migration.
