The 300-350 Show: Ricardo Navarro

| 15th July 2009
Fed up with waiting for global climate negotiations, a growing Movement of Climate Change Affected Peoples is tackling the problem head on with permacultural and low-tech solutions. Phil England speaks to Goldman Prize winner Ricardo Navarro about the movement...
 

 

We get a majority world perspective on the climate emergency from Goldman Prize winner Ricardo Navarro. Navarro won the Goldman prize for sustainable development back in 1995 for his work as founder and director of the El Salvador Centre for Appropriate Technology and he is a former director of Friends of the Earth International. Here he talks about how a new regional Movement of Climate Change Affected Peoples is responding to the pressures of climate change with awareness raising, permaculture techniques and low-level technologies as well as putting up resistance to inappropriate development. He also gives us his wider perspective on the United Nations climate talks which he has been attending since 1992.
