Climate Changing Communities

A Campaign to Share the Real Stories of Climate Change

Greenhouse gasses, Carbon footprints, Energy efficiency, protracted debates between politicians and thinkers. Is this what you think of when you think of climate change? For most people climate change is something that lies in the distant future.

For people like Bhan, Devidas, Jitendra, Luxmi and their communities, who depend heavily on climate sensitive natural resources, climate change is a reality that has altered their lives drastically. Ironically, this vulnerable section of society is the one that is most excluded from policy decisions on climate change.

Through a collaborative project, Video Volunteers and the Indian Network on Ethics and Climate Change have documented the effects of climate change on local communities across 14 states in India. This Web show is a compilation of the 18 videos that were created by Community Correspondents across the country. The videos make it very clear that the ground reality of climate change cannot be ignored any longer and that India must incorporate this reality in a strong policy to tackle climate change and assist those affected by it.

You’ve heard what the climate change experts have to say. Now you can see the stories of those directly affected by climate change. To ensure that these voices are heard and included in the climate change discussion, we ask you to forward this webpage to others, particularly organisations that work with climate change.
