How do you save a disappearing country? Listen to the voices of the climate crisis

I am back with one more podcast recommendation! "Tuvalu โ€“ how do you save a disappearing country?" is an episode of Today in Focus by The Guardian that shows what the climate crisis really looks like for island nations such as Tuvalu and what can be done to preserve a nation amidst the threat of rising sea levels.
30 minutes to understand the real impact of the climate crisis.

Tuvalu is a Pacific Islands country that is on the verge of becoming uninhabitable due to the alarming consequences of the climate crisis. Through the personal storytelling of Kalolaine Fainu, the episode transports you to the frontlines of Tuvalu, where you can witness the effects of sea level rise and the profound impact it has had on the lives of its citizens. From houses being destroyed, to crops being unable to grow and the need to relocate to neighbouring countries, the multi-faceted aspects of the climate crisis are already there and tangible in Tuvalu.

But while the country struggles to adapt a one-of-a-kind plan has emerged: the creation of a "digital twin" of the island on the Metaverse. This initiative aims to not only preserve the nation's administration but also safeguard its unique culture and way of life. The podcast shares the voices of the Tuvaluans, allowing us to hear firsthand from activists, politicians, and community members who try to grapple with the implications of this innovative approach. A very powerful and emotional listen. Don't miss out!
