Climate change has made millions vulnerable to modern slavery. 

Addressing UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 8.7 to end modern slavery, and the environmental SDGs, will require those with expertise in modern slavery and the environment to urgently combine their efforts.

Join event speakers to explore how an integrated approach to addressing modern slavery, climate change and environmental destruction can lead to impactful interventions by governments, communities, workers and business.
