Two poets, one from the Marshall Islands and one from Kalaallit Nunaat (Greenland), meet in a place of rising oceans so that they can share a moment of solidarity for the climate change they are seeing in their homelands. Kathy Jetñil-Kijiner and Aka Niviâna met on a melting glacier in Greenland that would threaten the Marshall Islands. They see the effects of the choices of the rest of the world changing their homes quicker than the other parts of the world. Through this video we get a glimpse of how large our world is, and yet so small and interdependent.
