Our collective is strong, Our solidarity is powerful.”

Oxfam & Waterbear present Climate Dispatches
Three climate activists. Three stories. One crisis that affects us all.
Voices at the frontline of the climate crisis too often go unheard, sidelined at world summits and in the media. Making the invisible, visible, Climate Dispatches raise these urgent stories.
Three climate activists invite you to join the fight for justice as they share their personal experiences living in Peru, Kenya and The Philippines; countries increasingly vulnerable as the climate crisis takes hold.
Their stories are our stories
EP01 Marinel Ubaldo
Marinel’s family was deeply affected by Typhoon Haiyan in 2013, which ignited her journey to climate activism and organising the first climate strike in her country.
I can't do it alone. We can't do it alone. We need everybody to be on board.”
EP02 Pavel Martiarena
Pavel is a Peruvian climate activist and photographer fighting large companies taking materials from the Amazon region.
They have taken so much from us, but they will not take away the most important things: hope and the strength to keep fighting.”
EP03 Abigael Kima
Abigael is a Kenyan producer and host of the Hali Hewa Podcast. She advocates for the people who are experiencing the worst of the climate crisis but aren't heard when key decisions are being made about their future.
