‘Can anyone here in this room convince me, and the ordinary housewives, in 2 mins what the (climate) problem is, why should I care; and if I do, what can I do about it?’, this lady asked this evening at a sharing session meant to ignite a new movement for climate awareness and action.
No one could take up her challenge. She stood up & spoke passionately a poem she wrote over the last 13 days, which is the length of time that she realised and decided to take responsibility for the problem for the very first time.
Her passion, her words, the stories that lie within moved & inspired me. Much more than any of the sharing that I actually came for.
