21 Years of COP-OUT? - Dr Nigel Crawhall

Dr Nigel Crawhall is our guest on the iStart2 Show this week. We chat about the Climate Change Agreement that was signed in Paris at COP21, his experiences during the negotiations and the implications for our country.

"Politicians must be held accountable, but we are the ones who will make the change. We all have to take ownership of the human family and do it out of love and what is good for the world," says Nigel.

Nigel Crawhall holds a PhD in Sociolinguistics and is currently the Director of Secretariat for the Indigenous Peoples of Africa Coordinating Committee (IPACC) based in Cape Town, South Africa. His life interest revolves around the relationship between people and our quality of life - internal, external and inter-dependent. His life work is expressed in terms of social justice, environmental sustainability, wildlife conservation and personal growth.
