The Human Rights Commission of the Philippines will come to Stirling for an expert meeting to finalise the recommendations closing the so-called Carbon Majors inquiry.
The inquiry is the first investigation of its kind worldwide, looking at the impact of climate change on the enjoyment of human rights and the responsibility of the world’s largest corporate emitters (the so-called ‘carbon majors’) in this connection. On occasion of the expert meeting, the University of Stirling will hold a public event where academics, students, and the public will have a chance to discuss the inquiry with the Commission and invited experts.
The public event will take place in the Court Room, Cottrell Building, University of Stirling, Stirling, FK9 4LA, on 24 April 2019, between 13:00 and 15:00, with a sandwich lunch served at 12:30.
The speakers will include the head of the Scottish National Human Rights Institution, Judith Robertson, and the special envoy of the Global Alliance of National Human Rights Institutions, Professor Alan Miller. At the event the winner of the student competition – launched by the Institute of Environmental Science for Social Change in the Philippines, with the support of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE), and the University of Stirling – to support the Commission in the drafting of its recommendations will also be announced. All welcome.
