Earth Refuge is the planet’s first legal think tank dedicated to climate migrants. Earth Refuge was launched in December 2020 by two law graduates who were in disbelief at the lack of legal protections available to those made to flee climate stressors. It has now grown into a community that focuses on providing context to the issue, as well as an array of initiatives aimed at creating holistic legal solutions.
Through adopting a legal approach to solving climate-induced migration, Earth Refuge goes beyond awareness and advocacy by providing resources to empower those in need. Our legal initiatives are 3-pronged – Research, Advocacy and Education – and our approach to fulfilling them is thorough, which means that they will take time.
