‘If Not Us Then Who’ launches in New York to answer one key question, who is protecting our forests?
This exciting new project opens from 18th September at The Corner Pop Up Shop, Roger Smith Hotel with a series of screenings, a photography exhibition and inspiring talks and discussions. This week long event intends to join up the dots between forests, forest communities and climate change when the world will be focusing on New York for the UN Climate Summit.
‘If Not Us Then Who’ communicates first-hand the personal stories of an inconspicuous yet vital people, as they battle to protect their lives, their cultures and our forests. These unique stories will be told through powerful videos and striking imagery, shown for the first time in this prime location.
