-Shell and responsibilities regarding climate change-
Do you like to learn more about how multinational corporations avoid their responsibilities to protect the climate, and about what you can do to hold them accountable? Come to the lecture The tactics of Shell, organized by Milieudefensie, Students for Sustainability Amsterdam and JMA (the youth organization of Milieudefensie), which will provide you with action perspectives.
Currently, multinationals merely enjoy rights and there are no international binding rules regarding human rights and the environment. Therefore it is imperative to find ways in which we can hold multinational corporations accountable if they violate human rights by, for instance, providing wages below poverty lines or harm the environment by continuing to drill fossil fuels despite of the Paris Agreement.
We organize a lecture to inform you about the ways in which multinationals currently try to delay the implementation of climate policy by getting into the tactics of Shell.
Furthermore, there will be room for discussion and an interactive session wherein we will jointly discover the possibilities for you to become locally active against corporate power.
So, are you enthusiastic to work towards a more sustainable, fair world and economic system, don’t miss out on this lecture!
See you there!
