Palestine, Land Rights and Environmental Justice (with Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh)

  • 18/04/2024
  • 6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
  • State Library Theatre

For over 75 years, Palestinians have resisted occupation, dispossession, and ethnic cleansing. The environmental impacts of the occupation and destruction of Palestine are less understood: water sources have been restricted, destroyed and polluted; habitat loss is pushing species like wolves, gazelles, and hyenas to the brink; destruction of crops and farmland drives food insecurity; and climate change is already impacting Palestine and its people.


Join us to hear first-hand from one of Palestine’s foremost environmental experts Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh, visiting Australia for the first time, in conversation with with local Palestinian, First Nations and environmental justice advocates.
Connect with others working to grow the global solidarity movement for peace, land rights and environmental justice.

Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh is a Palestinian scientist and author. He is a founder and director of the Palestine Museum of Natural History (PMNH) and the Palestine Institute for Biodiversity and Sustainability (PIBS) and teaches at the University of Bethlehem and Birzeit University.
