We have a dream
Meet 30 young indigenous people and people of colour protecting the planet.
Indigenous people and people of colour are disproportionately affected by climate change, yet often aren't heard in global conversation. In this book, British—Bangladeshi environmentalist and race activist 'Birdgirl' Mya-Rose Craig speaks to campaigners from around the world about what needs to be done.
From wildlife conservation to clean water, air pollution to plastic waste, climate justice to climate strikes, the time has come to listen to a generation of young people of colour demanding urgent change for the world they will inherit.
Mya Rose-Craig is a British-Bangladeshi naturalist, environmentalist and race activist. In February 2020, Mya-Rose became the youngest British person to be awarded an honorary doctorate in science from Bristol University, in recognition of her five years of campaigning for diversity in the environmental sector.
