Communities for Future
Our Response to the Climate Emergency
February 1-10, 2020
Visolela's message comes straight from a reality of community, deep relation with the land, and reverence for the power and fragility of nature. Her stories remind us how communities can be at the center of the preservation of our future. We hear about the situation in Africa regarding climate funds, climate injustice and the ongoing exploitation of local resources. We also get to know Visolela's beautiful vision for restoring the balance of Mother Earth and rewriting our legacy.
