MEET THE MOTHERS OF INVENTION

EPISODE 6: WE WANT A COLOUR TV 

This episode comes to you direct from New York City where Maeve lives and Mary was is the midst of the UN General Assembly - and now Climate Week. Governments, diplomats, business leaders and climate change experts gather to assess progress, make commitments and push for solutions to avert the climate crisis and deliver on the goals of the Paris Agreement.

Mary and Maeve set up in a Manhattan studio, for a special dispatch from the week joined by a flurry of Mothers of Invention. Kumi Naidoo, the new Director General of Amnesty International, passes by the studio at the start of the week, to share his perspective of environmental justice and human rights. Costa Rican diplomat Christiana Figueres and President Hilda Heine of the Marshall Islands also dropped by early, one morning, to report back on their weeks, which countries have committed what, and where we still need more action.

This week’s Mothers of Invention are:

 

Kumi Naidoo

Lifelong activist, anti-apartheid campaigner, former head of Greenpeace and now Director General of Amnesty International.

 

Christiana Figueres
