S3 - EPISODE 3:
MEET THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION
We search high and low for the most inspiring Mothers mitigating climate change all over the world. This late into the climate crisis, it’s now time for us to embrace adaptation as a solution, as communities reconsider the fight for their ancestral homes.
Island peoples and coastal communities are looking for safe ground to begin new threads of heritage for their children. Given that climate migration is set to be the biggest phenomenon of the century, when 180 million people migrate away from their homes, what internal and cross-border protections will safeguard environmental migrants? And how are those families preserving their cultures and traditions as they move away from their homelands?
We welcome Mary’s friend, Ursula Rakova, executive director of Tulele Peisa on the Carteret Islands, who is helping locals migrate to safe land. And Executive Director of the Gulf Coast Center for Law & Policy, Colette Pichon-Battle of Louisiana, USA who shares the work being done by local communities in the Bayou.
Executive producers: Jody Allen, Ruth Johnston, Matt Milios as well as Jess Search & Beadie Finzi.
