Additionally, the One Ocean Hub will host the Climate-related conflict: arts-based mediation and recourse to redress, in November 10th, 2021, at 2.30-5pm GMT at the University of Strathclyde. This hybrid event – onsite and online-, organized  in collaboration with the Strathclyde Centre for Environmental Law and Governance, and the Independent Redress Mechanism (IRM) of the Green Climate Fund (GCF), will feature a short animation film titled Indlela yokuphila (“The soul’s journey”) made by artists, traditional healers, marine sociologists, and deep-sea marine ecologists from South Africa will be screened at the event. It will be followed by a discussion of the One Ocean Hub’s findings on how to use art-based mediation in climate-related conflict and the role of small-scale fishers as environmental human rights defenders. The IRM will present different avenues through which the IRM provides recourse to complaints arising from the adverse impacts of GCF projects and programmes.
