In 2023, we are designing and conducting an international My Climate Change Story Master Class for youth in five Pacific island countries: Tonga, Fiji, Tuvalu, Kiribati, and Narau. Funded by the U.S. Embassy, this innovative and engaging multi-session workshop teaches youth ways of creating informative and captivating narratives to educate people worldwide about the impact of climate change in their Pacific Island communities.

Discussing climate change with youth in Tonga, March 2023

Climate change is disproportionately impacting regions such as the South Pacific. Warming ocean temperatures as a result of climate change are creating more powerful cyclones with increased potential to destroy our homes and communities. As ocean acidification becomes more prevalent, our beautiful and vital coral reefs, which provide a home for fish and other sea life, are becoming lifeless. These losses have serious consequences locally and internationally, as supplies of tuna and other sources of seafood are unable to replenish/restock to meet world demand.
