Fridays For Future is a global movement seeking to advocate for intersectional climate justice that I am proud to be a part of.
Intersectionality, for us, is beyond the nexus of social and environmental justice. It extends to the underlying issues of ‘development’ and ‘change’.
And ‘change’ is what my hometown is confronted with. We are caught in the crossroads of the pursuit of modernism and the sustentation of heritage. Though change is inevitable, what’s the price we must pay for it?
To know what we stand to lose, here’s a glimpse, captured by my colleague Naphtali Langstieh.
