Catching the last wave with Rev. James Bhagwan
In this episode of “Catching the last wave”, we are honored to host the General Secretary of the Pacific Conference of Churches (PCC) Reverend James Bhagwan. PCC is the region's peak ecumenical body with 33 member churches and 10 national councils of churches across 19 Pacific Island States and territories – accounting for some 80 percent of the Pacific’s human population.
Together with Padre James, we explored the most urgent climate-related security issues in the Pacific and what can be done to address them at the local, regional and global level.
Reverend James gave us a unique perspective of human security and climate change, focusing on the role of the church not only in advocating environmental issues but also in finding practical solutions to those challenges.
The podcast series “Catching the last wave” will explain how climate change is already and will continue shaping the way communities are living. It aims at raising awareness on climate security and foster an effective and informed dialogue on the issue at the regional and global levels, thereby providing an inclusive approach to building resilience.
