Direct from Palestine: In Conversation with Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh

A global movement is rising to call for an immediate and permanent ceasefire in Gaza, to end decades of colonisation, and work toward a free Palestine that delivers sustainable peace for all in the region.

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 on April 24 to hear first-hand from one of Palestine’s foremost environmental experts Professor Mazin Qumsiyeh, visiting Australia for the first time, in conversation with local Palestinian, First Nations and environmental justice advocates.

Professor Qumsiyeh is the founder and director of the Palestine Institute for Biodiversity and Sustainability and has spent his career writing and advocating for environmental protection, cultural heritage, climate justice, health, and human rights, particularly in his home of Palestine, amidst ongoing war, violence, and occupation.
