Voices from the Global South is a series of six short films made to stimulate thinking about and reflection on the difference that geography makes to understanding the climate crisis and its impact. Join us as we launch the series of films during London Climate Action Week to explore diverse perspectives on the climate crisis, emphasising the significance of incorporating insights from academic, policy, and indigenous advocacy groups. 

The six short films that make up Voices from the Global South explore: 

  • why it is valuable to think about the climate crisis – its roots, consequences and how it is experienced – from outside of the Global North 
  • why it is important to recognise contexts across the Global South when thinking about the causes and consequences of the climate crisis
  • what the Global North can learn from listening to the many voices from the Global South about their experiences of the climate crisis.

Taken together, the films offer an international virtual field trip designed to stimulate thinking about and reflection on the difference that geography makes to understanding the climate crisis and its impact.
