Our islands are on the frontline of sea level rise. The tragic irony is that the people whose cultures have sustained communities in fragile environments with limited resources for countless generations will be the first to lose their homelands due to the unsustainable lifestyles of the greater global community. As the climate crisis quickly rises to the top of world concerns, different sectors scramble to figure out ways to respond to its impending pressures. The elephant in the room puts the onus on governments and corporations. But we all have a vital role to play. During this panel, we will explore ways in which artists can use their voices to push the needle on political, economic, social and cultural questions at the root of this global concern. The discussion will be moderated by young Marshall Islands spoken word artist and activist Selina Leem, lauded for the stunning eloquence of her historic address to the COP21 panel for Paris Agreement.
