In this powerful video address at GLF Bonn 2020, we hear from Adenike Oladosu and Eric Lambin.
Adenike describes herself as an ‘eco-feminist’ who is passionate about increasing youth involvement in climate action. She is also head of the ILeadClimate movement for peace, security and equality in Africa, particularly in the Lake Chad region which is being devastated by the climate change crisis.
Eric Lambin, a geographer and environmental scientist, divides his time between the Université catholique de Louvain and Stanford University, where he occupies the Ishiyama Provostial Professorship at the School of Earth, Energy & Environmental Sciences and the Woods Institute for the Environment. His research tries to better understand the causes and impacts of land-use changes in different parts of the world. His current focus is understanding how globalization affects global land use, and how private and public regulations of land use interact to promote more sustainable land-use practices.
