Kerala Literature Festival in its fifth edition has its prime focus on the climate crisis that we are currently facing.
More than a century back, Chief Seattle posed a plea to the entire world that questioned the insensitivity of the youth towards the changes around them, which has become our reality now. He questioned the existing, what seemed to be right then. Overlooked as being an inevitable change, Chief Seattle’s concern about a tomorrow has come true. Everything around us has changed even if we haven’t.
The insensitivity to our own reality has molted into the climate crisis that we are facing, which has been questioned by a sixteen- year old. Social media has given her a voice that the world is listening to. What would happen if more of us spoke up?
