POCC and Dazed Fight Climate Change

Our eiNetwork member Louis VI is fighting against climate change and calling for action from others around the world. The World is (Y)Ours is a short film produced by Pocc, which looks at climate change from the perspective of black and brown people in Britain.

The film, directed by Tanya Noushka and music and narration by musician Louis VI, explores through a number of contributors, how actions in Western countries can negatively affect our ancestral homes across the world. In addition, black and minority ethnic communities living in Western countries are more likely to be adversely affected by the negative effects of climate change ahead of any other group. How can we rise up and make sure we have our say this year?
