The World’s First Climate Refugees
This is a story about people who stand to lose everything. People who may need to flee their native home and never come back. These people are refugees, but they’re not running from war or an oppressive government. They’re seeking asylum from climate change.
The World’s First Climate Refugees is a new episode of Seekers Stories on Vlad Sokhin’s ongoing photo project “Warm Waters” about Climate Change in the Pacific, produced by Discovery.
Seeker Stories finds arresting and unexpected stories in a diverse and changing world. Through short docs, beautiful photographs, and on-the-ground reporting, we try to connect you to places and events that might otherwise feel distant. We’re drawn to stories that surprise, challenge, and inspire us. In short, we want to create a more empathetic world.
