Compelling artistic work harnessing the creativity of the Pacific to bring the reality of climate change from the islands to COP27. Mana Moana Pasifika Voices is a collection of artistic video works, created to amplify and support the Pacific to drive global action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. This collection is the second in a series that began in 2021.
The powerful collection of 9 poems was launched at the UN climate change conference in Sharm el-Sheikh. The Twenty-Seventh Conference of the Parties to the UN’s Framework Convention on Climate Change is reported to bring together 55,000 people for the global negotiations.
