This inspiring film features Dr Tu Hkawng (National Unity Government, Minister for Natural Resources and Environmental Conservation) and Saw Paul Sein Twa (KESAN, the 2020 Goldman Prize Winner), and explains how indigenous people fight climate change and sustain both human communities and ecosystems. Produced by Tom Sheahan and Ashley South.Visit their site
