In Wales we talk about global warming, but have yet to experience its fullest impacts. For countless marginalized communities around the world, it’s a different story. Climate change is radically affecting people’s lives in the global south. And those who suffer the most – and contribute to environmental degradation the least – are consistently silenced from speaking up.
DECOLONISING ENVIRONMENTALISM is a community symposium that looks at climate justice from the perspective of global south communities, as well as the relationship Wales has to its migrant communities locally and globally. The event will explore connections across environmentalism, race, class, geography, power and the persistent residues of colonialism.
We’ll also be screening THANK YOU FOR THE RAIN, an extraordinary documentary about Kenyan farmer Kisilu Musya. When he meets Norwegian filmmaker, Julia Dahr, they decide to document the merciless impacts of climate change on Kisilu, his family and community.

Once the greatest exporter of fossil fuels in the form of coal, today Wales has the opportunity to press forward with a radical agenda on climate change and sustainability. Please join us at a community-focused event that asks how Wales, as a small nation, can lead the way with its ground breaking ‘Well Being of Future Generations’ legislation to model sustainable and just futures.
This event is FREE for asylum seekers!
