World Village Festival: Globalisation challenges local ways of life (FRO/FIN)
World Village Festival, Village Cinema (On the Rocks), Mikonkatu 15, Helsinki, Finland
Climate change and globalization are some of the most powerful forces in our time, their effects felt by people all around the world.
How do local societies such as the Sami and the Faroese view the changes caused by these forces? How well does their surrounding world understand and support their ways of life? What can these societies do to adapt to the changes?
Discussing these themes are Faroese freelance journalist and sociologist Liljan Weihe and Sami reindeer herder, filmmaker and journalist Aslak Paltto. The discussion is moderated by journalist, documentary photographer and nonfiction author Kukka Ranta.
The discussion is held in English.Go to Facebook event page
