    #SameStormDifferentBoats; Telling the African climate crisis story

    #SameStormDifferentBoats; Telling the African climate crisis story

    In this Africa Day 2021 episode of Sustain267 podcast we bring the “SameStormDifferentBoats; Telling the African climate crisis story” conversation, hosted by the Wangari Maathai Foundation in commemoration of the late Wangari Maathai’s birthday.
    Youth climate activism has continued to raise the consciousness of the urgency with which public and political action on the climate crisis is required. The continent of Africa bears the brunt of the impact of the climate crisis and young Africans are at the frontline of climate action, however, they are not seen on the front page (and sometimes even deleted from the front page), nor are their voices heard during the debates on climate change.
    What will it take to get their voices to the table? What do they offer to the conversations? and what are they optimistic about?
    The WMF Chairperson, Wanjira Mathai, hosted this conversation with Greta Thunberg, Elizabeth Wathuti a young climate activist from Kenya, Vanessa Nakate a young climate activist from Uganda, Olumide Idowu a climate activist from Nigeria and Professor Youba Sokona, a climate scientist from Africa.
