The Beam #9 – Voices From The Global South: Help Us Spread The Word!

Can you hear the rumble of individuals who are raising their voice in anger to demand that their government realize the scale of the climate crisis? A profound immediate systemic change is what they demand, and this upsurge of activists will not accommodate with their governments words and pledges. They want climate action and they want it now!

Can you hear the rumble of individuals who are raising their voice in anger to demand that their government realize the scale of the climate crisis? A profound immediate systemic change is what they demand, and this upsurge of activists will not accommodate with their governments words and pledges. They want climate action and they want it now!

While we’re really happy about all this turmoil, we realize that these movements are mostly taking place in the most industrialized, wealthy, and urban corners of the planet.

In an email interview with Edelsin Linette Mendez, a 12-year-old girl who documented climate change from her community in Nicaragua, we naively asked her if she had heard of Greta Thunberg. Of course she didn’t.

So we decided to dedicate this new edition of The Beam to the people who don’t make it to the headlines. We want to give a space to some of the individuals and communities who are suffering a great deal of consequences due to our way of life and whose opinions are not being asked. Although, they are both the most affected by climate change, and the most active campaigners to save the planet. We have a lot to learn from these communities we often look at with indifference or arrogance. It starts here, with The Beam #9 – Voices from the Global South.

Now, what can we do about it? You could start by helping to raise awareness towards that issue by becoming a Distribution Partner of The Beam. By becoming a Distribution Partner of The Beam #9 – Voices from the Global South, you are taking part in the mission to raise “Climate Action” awareness and to advocate for the solutions.

In this edition of The Beam we feature an extensive dossier on the role of women in energy access in developing countries, an exclusive interview with Mexican artist Fernando Laposse, an article on how to sustain indigenous forest and their community in Papua New Guinea, and a photo essay on energy poverty around the world.

We’ve also worked with more than 20 incredible experts from those organizations: deneff, Hivos, MIT, TU Delft, Berkeley, Ecoligo, Energy Watch Group, En-Act, Smiling Through Light, Elle Solaire, Impact Hub, Nexleaf Analytics, dena, CleanTechnica, right based on science, DWR eco, and Zolar. These experts wrote exclusive stories and opinion pieces on Energy Efficiency,  Politics & Activism, Clean Cooking, Climate Action, Sustainable Consumption, Emobility, Sustainable Food, and Circular Economy, to name a few.

In The Beam #9 – Voices from the Global South you will also find interviews with Yisha He, Chairwoman of Unisun Energy Group; Alexandra Wandel, Executive Director of the World Future Council; Edelsin Linette Mendez, 12-year-old documentary maker; Hans-Josef Fell, President of Energy Watch Group and Christian Breyer, Professor of Solar Economy; Justin P. Moore, Vegan Chef, and Henrietta Kekäläinen, CEO and Co-Founder of Carbocultures.

Join other great activists and organizations and Share The Beam with your clients, partners and staff and possibly even supply it to all the cafes in your area: bring Climate Action Awareness to the people. As soon as you become a Distribution Partner, we’ll add your organization’s logo to our partners page and to all our communications material.

If you are interested to order more than 320 copies, please contact us at thebeam@the-beam.com

If you would like to support us but don’t have the capacity of becoming a distribution partner, join our Ambassador Program: we’ll send you 2 copies and we’ll print your name in the magazine as a thank you!
