The Bolivian Climate Revolution

After the failure of the Copenhagen Summit last year, the government of Bolivia hosted a World People’s Conference on Climate Change in the Andean city of Cochabamba, ‘City of Eternal Spring’. Bolivia’s President Evo Morales had, along with leaders from countries from Venezuela to Tuvalu, been instrumental in opposing the non-binding Copenhagen Accord produced by the summit. The Cochabamba conference was a direct response to Copenhagen’s failure, and bought together 30,000 people from 100 countries, drawn from both civil society and national governments.

Arthur Girling of Climate Radio traveled to Cochabamba and produced a 50 minute documentary on what he saw, including interviews with representatives from participating NGOs and governments, as well as commentary, analysis, field recordings and diaristic observations.
