Workshop - PCP & University of Wollongong 17 Sep 2012
Citizens of the Pacific Island Nation of Kiribati live on the front line of climate change. Rising sea levels, saltwater intrusion and ocean acidification threaten their way of life, their culture and their nation’s future. Yet Kiribati seldom features in the mainstream media.
This workshop will explore the way Pacific Island nations have been portrayed in the media around climate change and will involve a discussion about how the people of Kiribati and other Pacific Island nations can be assisted to tell their stories in their own way and be heard by Australians and the global community
The workshop will feature speakers from Kiribati and UoW and is presented by the University of Wollongong, Faculty of Arts in conjunction with the Pacific Calling Partnership (www.erc.org.au) and the UoW Envirocollective.

Fact-sheets on key issues:
ERC initiative the Pacific Calling Partnership promotes awareness of the devastating effects of climate change on low-lying island communities of the Pacific. The PCP campaign goes beyond both the science and the spin to make evident 'the human face of climate change'.
Update: ERC Director, Phil Glendenning, recently returned to Australia from Afghanistan after 10 days interviewing returned asylum seekers again in Kabul.
ERC is redoubling our efforts to find a third-country resettlement option for those returnees from Australia with whom we have been able to make contact. We need financial support to achieve this.
Such work uncovers high levels of risk for the deportees (and for our researchers). Research publications are available here.
Listen to Phil speak of the visit to ABC Radio National's Phillip Adams.
