The Children of Kiribati

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:35 pm on 25 September 2018

Climate change is often thought of in the abstract, of something to prepare for in the future. 

For some, that future is already here. Rising sea levels, threatening weather and, particularly, poverty are already being seen on the island of Kiribati. And the children that live there are faced with what their home might become. 

Their story has been told in a new short documentary, made for the fourth season of Wireless Docs. Director Andrea Egan tells us more about it.
