The voices in the film
Norway Social Forum, in cooperation with Differ Media, has made a short informational film where we aim to put the current climate crisis in a larger international perspective. We hope to bring forward the economic aspects of the climate challenge that we face.
The interviews were taken during the World Social Forum in Tunisia at the end of March 2015. The World Social Forum is a gathering place for activists and organizations from around the world. This was a perfect opportunity to bring together the voices of a broad group of experts Among those interviewed is Elizabeth Mpofu, international coordinator of La Via Campesina, and Pablo Solón, leader in Focus on the Global South. Solón is previously the ambassador from Bolivia to the UN, and earlier leader of Bolivias participation in the climate negotiations. The voices in the film represent five continents. Among others, Richard Girard from Polaris Institute and Global Campaign to Dismantle Corporate Power, Marjorie Pamintuan from Asia-Pacific Research Network (APRN), Lucile Falgueyrac from Attac France and Aitec, Pascoe Sabido from Corporate Europe Observatory, and Nina Skranefjell from Norway Social Forum.
