Pacific island. A Take One Action Local hosted by Edinburgh COP26
7.00pm – 9.00pm Friday 24 September FILM Chat
Pacific Island nation of Kiribati (population: 100,000) is one of the
most remote places on the planet, far-removed from the pressures of
modern life. Yet it is one of the first countries facing the dilemma of
our time: inundation from sea-level rise.
Kiribati’s President Anote Tong races to find a way to protect his
nation’s people and maintain their dignity, many Kiribati are seeking
safety in New Zealand.
Against the backdrop of
global climate negotiations, Anote’s struggle to save his nation is
intertwined with the fate of Tiemeri, a mother of six, who fights to
move her family to New Zealand. At stake is the survival of Tiemeri’s
family, the Kiribati people, and 4,000 years of Kiribati culture.
