Indigenous people and people of colour are disproportionately affected by climate change, yet often are not heard in global conversations. In this event, British Bangladeshi environmentalist and race activist Dr Mya-Rose Craig (AKA Birdgirl) talks us through her new book, We Have a Dream, in which she speaks to thirty young environmental campaigners of colour from around the world about what needs to be done. The climate crisis is not going away, and it will take critical action to avert us from the course we are on. 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. Mya-Rose will be in conversation with Nadine Aisha Jassat.
This is a live event, with an author Q&A. After the event, Mya-Rose Craig will be doing an in-person book signing on the Festival site.
