There Is No Planet B — launch
Thursday 15th April 2021
With Emily Reyes, Harold Blandon and Olivia Lekel from our partners CEPAD in Nicaragua.

Watch again  |  Listen again

Nicaragua is one of the countries most affected by climate change. While the world is talking about the need for drastic action, the people of Nicaragua have been living with its escalating consequences for decades.

This webinar marked the launch of our new five-year programme with our partner CEPAD. We are investing in their work in seven rural communities in Nicaragua’s dry belt — where long periods of drought are now followed by intense rain and flooding, and where hurricanes are becoming more frequent and more severe.

Pandora’s Pandemic Box
Thursday 15th April 2021
With Paul Sunder Singh from Amos partner Karunalaya in Chennai (above) in conversation with Dr Elizabeth Joy from CTE and Amos’ On Her Terms Lead, Karin Joseph.

Watch again  |  Listen again

Paul Sunder Singh from our partner Karunalaya updated us on the situation, particularly in Chennai and Tamil Nadu, where hospital admissions have already reached levels not seen since the first outbreak when Karunalaya had to provide essential food support to the local pavement-dwelling communities as their needs were not recognised by central and local government.

We were also joined by good friend of Amos, Dr Elizabeth Joy. Elizabeth is the former Executive Secretary for Mission Education at the Council for World Mission and board member of Churches Together in England (CTE). 

Her family are from Tamil Nadu, although she was brought up in Bangalore. She joined Paul to talk about some of the other difficulties currently facing India, including the political and social changes instigated by the Modi government and the ever-worsening impact of climate change.

COP 26 – Young Climate Activists
Thursday 6th May 2021
Young climate activists from the UK and Nicaragua discuss their hopes, fears and demands for COP 26

Watch again

When last year’s COP (UN Climate Change Conference) was delayed by 12 months, young people from around the world called their own ‘Mock COP’. Delegates from 140 countries put together and voted through their own treaty with 18 policies/demands for COP 26.

For our own COP 26 webinar, we were delighted to host a group of young climate activists from the UK and Nicaragua who were drawn together by our partner CEPAD.

They identified which aspects of the Mock COP 26 treaty were most important to them and what they were doing to pressure governments to adopt them. They also share what they would like us to do.

Watch again  |  Listen again

For our 33rd and final webinar of Amos@6 Season 4, we took the opportunity to celebrate our planet and to amplify the call for radical action to address climate change and to call for climate justice. Spoken word artist Zena Kazeme performed some of her own work as well as hosting a range of other performers and activists.

Zena Kazeme is a Persian-Iraqi poet and author who draws on her experiences as a former refugee to create poetry that explores themes of exile, home, war and heritage.

She took part in Amos’ Once In A Lifetime climate justice cabaret in September 2019 and we were thrilled to include two of her works in our Seeds Of Hope book. She is a contributor to BBC Radio 2’s Pause For Thought and is Amos’ latest trustee.
