The continuance of colonial narratives hinders action on climate change. Meet the people working with diverse communities to build a movement.

Anna Lau introduces the upcoming ‘Climate Stories’ series that will be “talking about the power, felt through racialised political, economic, immigration, war, education, health, and policing systems that prevent many people from living, let alone ‘taking on climate change'” and will “also highlight avenues of hope, the perspectives, processes and innovations making it possible to imagine the weaving of a different kind of collective story”.
