2018 WOMADelaide Planet Talks - Climate Justice & the Human Face of Climate Change

August 24, 2018

Speakers: Kathy Jetnil Kijiner, Ursula Rakova, Julian Burnside, and Tim Costello

Host: Ben Doherty

While the world’s richest countries talk about climate change, many of the poorest nations are experiencing its devastating effects right now. Climate justice activists, Ursula Rakova (Carteret Islands) and Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner (Marshall Islands) are the human face of climate change. Their homelands are the first nations of people being forcibly displaced due to manmade global warming. Ursula Rakova and Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner are joined by Julian Burnside and Tim Costello to explore our responsibilities and the human face of climate change.
