A new climate change documentary Walanbaa Ngiiyani, Stronger Together follows a crew of Pacific climate activists and Australian school students visiting the lands of the Gomeroi people in New South Wales. 

It's here they explore the impact of Australian mega coal mines on the environment.  

Managing director of climate change charity 350.org and documentary organiser, Joseph Sikulu told RNZ Pacific's Caleb Fotheringham why stories are one of the most powerful ways to advocate for climate action.
