On Tuesday 21 June 2022, GCILS Member Dr Joanna Dingwall will be speaking at the second annual online Summer/Winter School of the Global Network for Human Rights and the Environment (GNHRE) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).  

This year, the School will focus on the theme of “Water – from Oceans to Taps.” From inner-city infrastructure to hydro-dams, from spiritual waterways to transnational rivers, from exclusive economic zones to the depths of the oceans, the whole interconnected water cycle and the lives it supports are increasingly under threat. 

As part of the session on “Critical Human Rights Issues at the Ocean-Climate Nexus”, Dr Dingwall will address the human rights and climate change challenges posed by deep seabed mining beyond national jurisdiction. Joining her on this panel will be Professor Elisa Morgera, Mr Mitchell Lennan, Ms Julia Nakamura (all University of Strathclyde) and Dr Ellycia Harrould-Kolieb (University of Eastern Finland). The session will include a Q&A for your chance to put your questions to the panel and to take part in the discussion.
