 6 DECEMBER 2015

"We are both guardians of the forest." -Mundiya Kepenga's statement to Robert Redford at today's UNESCO event entitled "An Afternoon with Robert Redford: Storytelling for Global Action."

Mundiya Kepenga is a Papuan traditional Leader from Papua New Guinea who, as he states, testifies about climate change with his eyes. He is a witness to climate change, which he is experiencing through the loss of his people's drinking water and the disappearance of native species.
