Personal Climate Change Stories, recorded in Singapore

August 4th, 2008 andrea

During the Luminous Green workshop at Singapore Management University during the ISEA festival, I was able to conduct short interviews with 5 of the international participants about their personal experiences with climate change. The range of backgrounds and experiences was very wide, from the Malaysian jungle to the north of Finland. Sound files for each of the interviews are posted here, with a podcast link of all the interviews combined. Apologies for the noise in the background of the recordings, but perhaps enjoy the Singapore street sounds. Posted in chronological order:

Jura Kaario speaks of his experiences in Finland growing up near a frozen lake

Isrizal, a Singaporean activist, talks about the loss of his boyhood home and learning how to ask permission to impact the environment

Dr. Lanfranco Aceti discusses desertification in Italy and the influence of the US on Italian culture

Singaporean designer Jeremy Sun Ting Kung talks about growing up in Taiwan and how design can change behavior
