Walden Bello: Act Against Climate Change, Act For the Earth, December 2007
Walden Bello, executive director of Focus on the Global South and professor of sociology at the University of the Philippines, is one of the leading critics of the current model of economic globalisation, combining the roles of intellectual and activist. In this video he underlines the importance of the 2007 Kyoto climate talks in Bali and the December 8 global day of action. As a human rights and peace campaigner, academic, environmentalist and journalist, and through a combination of courage as a dissident, with an extraordinary breadth of published output and personal charisma, he has made a major contribution to the international case against corporate-driven globalisation. In 2003, he was given the Right Livelihood Award, also known as the Alternative Nobel Prize, for “…for outstanding efforts in educating civil society about the effects of corporate globalisation, and how alternatives to it can be implemented.”
He has also played a leading role as an environmentalist, and is a member and former Chair of the board of Greenpeace South East Asia.
