Older people can shed light on climate change debate

16 Dec 2009

At HelpAge, we are calling for the voices of older people to be heard in the climate change debate. Voices of people like Daisy, below, who is 55 with six children and two grandchildren.

She grows crops and looks after chickens to earn a living and is very aware of the changing climate. She says: "Climate change is affecting food production, we don't produce enough food."

The camera may be shaky, but the evidence stands firm. Older people have views on climate change and want to be heard.
