The University of Chicago Center for Global Health (CGH), Energy Policy Institute at UChicago (EPIC), and Sustainable Pritzker invite you to a special screening of the documentary Nowhere to Run: Nigeria’s Climate and Environmental Crisis. Nigeria faces a looming climate and environmental crisis that it can no longer afford to ignore. Nowhere to Run explores the creeping effects of climate change and unchecked environmental degradation that pose major socio-economic, political, and sustainable development challenges to communities across Nigeria, whose population is projected to reach 450 million by 2050, making it the third largest after India and China.
Special guests Sola Olopade and Amir Jina will provide context and present on related research ahead of the filming.
