There's No Planet B: Climate Justice Heroes: Yeb Sano

It's been said that one of Yeb Sano’s defining moments came during the 2013 UN Climate Summit in Warsaw, where, as the Philippines Chief Negotiator, he delivered an emotional appeal and underwent 14 days of fasting in solidarity with Typhoon Haiyan (Yolanda) victims, and all those already faced with the impacts of the climate crisis. With nearly two decades of experience working to combat climate change, Yeb is the Executive Director of Greenpeace Southeast Asia, and has been tirelessly working towards achieving social and environmental justice, especially for developing nations. Ahead of World Environment Day, we speak to Yeb about issues related to the climate crisis, and how he is campaigning for the defense of ancient forests, and against carbon polluters.
