I AM NALA

Susan Wairimu & Mthembukazi Bavuma: Providing the Platform for Young Climate Activists | Ep 3

Oct. 31, 2022

In previous COP conferences, there has been a severe lack of young people attending the negotiations that will affect our planet for generations to come. This is the year it changes!

Why should the youth have their voices heard any less? They are affected by climate change just like everyone else, and some are taking action.

Kenya/South Africa: Today on the show Susan Wairimu & Mthembukazi Bavuma join us to discuss why young people need to attend the COP 27 conference and the change that can be made within the communities, using a bottom-up approach when it comes to implementing policies.

Highlights:

  • Susan and Mthembukazi talking about why they are Nala
  • Susan getting pregnant as a teenager, and not letting that define her
  • Mthembukazi on every generation joining in on the climate change conversation
  • Why we need to think of climate change as Afrocentric
  • What the priorities should be for the African and European leaders
  • Young people have agency in the climate change conversation
  • The power of telling our story
  • And much more…
