Abstract

The Earth’s climate is changing faster than at any point in the history of modern civilisation through human-induced global warming, yet it is hard to hear this scientific truth and public reactions remain dissonant. Inspired by a 2019 conference, Moana: Water of Life, this book showcases the challenges and potential fruits of an open dialogue between stakeholders to navigate the critical challenges to planetary health caused by climate change.

Inviting participants to contribute ‘in their own voices’, this book cuts across real-life insights, ranging from researchers from the Pacific Islands Region on the front line of devastating water surpluses and shortages, to the thoughts of leading climate change and Earth scientists, social scientists, educators, faith leaders, theologians and activists who are offering practical solutions to the problem. By highlighting this collection of inspiring stories at the local and global levels, the authors offer a vision of hope for communities in the future to communicate, adapt to change and ultimately resist further deterioration of the planet’s health.

The book features a Foreword by Justin Welby, Archbishop of Canterbury and an Afterword by Archbishop Emeritus Winston Halapua, formerly Bishop of Polynesia and one of three primates of Aotearoa, New Zealand and Polynesia
