About this Episode

Kelo Uchendu is a Nigerian student at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka and an active member of a broad coalition of student climate movements across the world that held the MOCK-COP. This was the youth climate movement's answer to the vacuum left by the UN's delayed COP26. Kelo is a member of Grey 2 Green Movement in Nsukka and Students Organising for Sustainability. Being in a youth climate movement in the Global South, Kelo knows about climate justice and explains in the podcast how the lack of climate justice in the world today plays out in Africa. While westerners in the Industrial North think of the threats to their pensions and property from climate change, most are unaware of the impacts that are already playing out in other parts of the world, affecting people who played practically no part in creating the issue. And that, by every reasonable definition, is a dire injustice.
