"If Not Us Then Who?” Why we need ancestral wisdom in all climate decision making
We need Indigenous, ancestral wisdom in all climate decision making, says filmmaker and founder of “If Not Us Then Who”, Paul Redman. Diversifying climate storytelling and creators has been Paul’s mission since growing up in Apartheid South Africa and this start in investigative documentary filmmaking in his 20s. Since then, he’s collaborated on building a movement for more resources for Indigenous Peoples in film. In conversation with Climate Curious at Climate Week NYC at the Our Village event, Paul shares why belonging, community and caring for your neighbours should be at the forefront of everyone’s climate action!If Not Us Then Who supports environmental leadership from Indigenous Peoples and Local Communities to build networks and cultivate inclusive impact driven storytelling.
