Witnessing Climate Change
Climate change is too often discussed in the abstract – in terms of graphs, statistics and future projections. So what does climate change look like today, across the globe? How is it affecting the daily lives of people, plants and animals? What are the obstacles – in political systems and in language – that hinder change and can we overcome them?
At the Athenaeum Theatre, we hear moving words and performances from Marshall Islands spoken-word artist Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner and activist Ursula Rakova from Papua New Guinea as well as New York Times science writer Jim Robbins and Melbourne-based author and environmentalist Tony Birch.
