The Australian Musem's (AM) Changing Climate exhibition explores key themes of how humans are changing the climate, the impact on Australia's ecosystem and animals and what we can do to address these issues on a personal level.

As part of this project, the AM published interviews with a variety of people to answer 3 questions: What is climate change? What are the impacts of climate change? What are the solutions to climate change? These videos explore the experiences of climate change in Australia and the Pacific and reflections on the solutions we are finding.

Interviewees include:

  • Varsha Yajman, Spokesperson, Schools Strike 4 Climate
  • Dr Tim Flannery, Distinguished Fellow in Climate Change, Australian Museum
  • Tommy Esau, Leader, Kwaio people, Malaita, Solomon Islands
