Teachers could use the section from 0:45 - 1:52 to explain climate migration to students.
Teachers could teach students about the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly, and Regular Migration using part 2:28-2:54 to explain.
Teachers could use this video to explain the relationship between climate change and economic impacts on individuals and communities (people have to move, leave their businesses behind, or begin again in a new location).
