Sauver l'orange - climate tipping points

Scientists have defined climate tipping points : areas such as the Sahara, the Artic Sea Ice, the Amazonas Rainforest where human actions would lead to irreversible destruction creating a domino effect for the global earth climate.

Qui sont tous ces gens ? 

Pourquoi risquent-ils leur vie et la perdent souvent ?

Comment était leur vie, leur village, leur ville  ? 

Victor del Arbol  - Des traversées et des mots

Since  the earliest times, humanity has been on the move. Some people move in search of work or economic opportunities, to join family, or to study. Others move to escape conflict, persecution, terrorism, or human rights violations. Still others move in response to the adverse effects of climate change, natural disasters, or other environmental factors.

Today, more people than ever live in a country other than the one in which they were born.  According to the International Migration Office in its  World Migration Report 2020, as of June 2019 the number of international migrants was estimated to be almost 272 million globally. International migrants comprised 3.5 per cent of the global population in 2019.

They all have in common a story written in their body, a long path to a hopeful place.
