Modelling the Future in Boe Boe Community.
Seventy-four-year old Jean Taqevala silenced the meeting as she journeyed from the old village in the hills, over Snake Ridge and down the forest path to the narrow coastal plain where the Boe Boe village now stands.
She had not physically made the journey for more than four decades, but her memory was reconnected through a large 3-dimensional model of customary lands that villagers had crafted over a week-long participatory mapping exercise. See how they turned a conventional flat map into a physical,
hands-on relief model that everyone could see, feel, touch and connect with.
Participatory video made by Chivoko Village.
The Chivoko video was produced by the residents of Chivoko Village following a two-week workshop on the impacts of climate change.
As the video demonstrates, insights into climate change also translated into a wider understanding of resource management leading Chivoko villagers to reassess where they build, how they fish their reefs and how they log their forests.
