We Have A Dream
Indigenous people and people of colour are disproportionately affected by climate change, yet often are not heard in global conversations.
As a British-Bangladeshi environmentalist and race activist, I was interested to hear and amplify the voices of young environmentalists of colour from around the world who are usually ignored. I spent months researching and locating 30 young environmentalists who were working on different types of projects, all over the world. I spoke to these incredible young people, many who had been campaigning since they were 8 or 9 years old, about what they think are the issues and what needs to be done to make change.
From wildlife conservation to clean water, air pollution to plastic waste, climate justice to climate strikes, the time has come to listen to a generation of young people of colour demanding urgent change for the world they will inherit.
Environmental and diversity campaigner Mya-Rose Craig aka Birdgirl speaks to 30 Black, Indigenous and People of Colour campaigners from around the world, including; Autumn Peltier, Vanessa Nakate and Lesein Mutunkei. These communities are disproportionately affected by climate change, yet often aren’t heard in global conversations. From wildlife conservation to clean water, from air pollution to plastic waste, from climate justice to climate strikes, the time has come to listen to a generation of young people demanding urgent change for the world they will inherit.
