ursula rakova

Born on the tiny island of Han off the Carteret Islands in the South Pacific, Ursula Rakova founded Tulele Peisa, a community organisation in Papua New Guinea. She answered her elders’ call for action to set up Tulele Peisa, which works towards the relocation of her entire island community to nearby Bougainville in response to the devastating impacts of climate change. Rakova is a pioneer in PNG’s environmental movement - suing illegal loggers on behalf of traditional landowners - and tireless campaigner for the survival of her people.

Presented by arrangement with the WOMADelaide Planet Talks.
