http://www.greenbeltmovement
Are you involved in creating artistic work or cultural productions that engages with ecological or sustainability concerns?
yes
What do you think of the role of culture in climate change / moving towards an ecological age?
It is crucial. Art is a dynamic medium to communicate serious socio-political / environmental issues and is most effective for mass media communication, education, stimulation of debate etc.
Who are your favourite artists/ filmmakers / other cultural 'actors'. Add links if possible
reviews of African artists on my blog: www.ireallyloveafrica.tumblr.com
What is your biggest concern re. climate change?
Climate change's impact on development of climate-dependent activities (such as infrastructure and agriculture) and indirect consequences for social systems (such as issues of poverty, conflict, health and education). As a result, climate change has the potential to undermine, and even undo, socio-economic development in Africa for instance.
Am interested in research on the the effect it has on migrating communities in Africa. Am interested in Human rights: Protecting people and the environment.
What is your biggest inspiration re. climate change?
Wangari Maathai, Kenyan environmental and political activist who proved the power of one and created incredible eco-awareness and environmental change. The inspiring recycling activities in poor communities like Khayelitsha and the abundant organic gardens.
What do you think you can do to help prevent / minimise climate change?
communicate through my arts projects, media, columns, blogs, creative writing, poetry, arts festivals, effective networking, eating a sustainable non-meat diet, being a cyclist, growing own vegetables, planting a tree every birthday...
