Voices Not Heard: The Climate Fight of Malaysia’s Youth
As climate change begins to wreak havoc, especially on the world’s developing nations, a 23-year-old Malaysian activist travels to Paris to represent young people from countries like his at the COP21 climate negotiations. His journey to discover his role as an activist on a global stage, to speak up for the underrepresented Global South, and to continue fighting now in the face of U.S. President Trump’s abandonment of the Paris Agreement, provides insight into the world of international climate negotiations and activism that is rarely reported to the public.
Join Dr. Ben Tanner, Assistant Professor of Environmental Science, film director Scott Brown, and environmental sustainability fellow Matthew Heid for a special viewing of the film and a discussion about how we can reverse the threat of climate change.
