Benjamin Brooking: Esau & Rae

This is Esau Sinnok & Itinterunga Rae Bainteiti from the island's of Shishmaref in the Arctic and Kiribati in the Pacific. They live at different latitudes and very different temperatures, but they share a similar community based lifestyle.

At COP21 I got them together to discuss how climate change is affecting their  homes and families. When talking about climate change we need to remember those most affected.
