How can we make climate security a global effort?

February 20

Climate change and the safety risks that arise from it are a global problem. However, the effects and risks of climate change are not yet experienced the same everywhere. Despite all climate summits, it is therefore difficult to achieve global action. During this HagueTalks three international speakers will share their insights and experience on getting national and international action on climate security. What does it take to make climate security a truly global effort? 


  • Tom Middendorp. Former Commander of the Armed Forces Tom Middendorp has been actively involved in the settlement of dozens of conflicts worldwide. His comments on climate change as a threat to world peace drew a lot of attention. How did he come to this insight and how does he feel that we need to work together globally in the area of climate change?
  • Other speakers will be announced here shortly


The Planetary Security Initiative Conference 2019 will be held in The Hague on 19 and 20 February. Under the title #doable, policy makers, researchers, NGO staff and the private sector meet in The Hague to discuss how climate change influences conflict and global stability. And what has to be done about it. Specially for HagueTalks, three speakers from this conference come to Humanity House to share their experience and insight with an audience.

The event will be co-hosted by Humanity House and Planetary Security Initiative. If you can’t attend, follow us via livestream here.
