“Living with Changes” or “Sindaun Wantaim Senis” in the local tok pisin language, is a short documentary, planned, shot and edited by the people of Ahus Island, off the north coast of Manus Island. Participatory video is the name given to the video or videos produced by a group or community where participation from all members of the community including the elderly and youth is encouraged therefore representing the views of the whole community.
Ahus Island is a very low lying sand island severely affected by climate change, storms and coastal erosion. On top of that their population is ever increasing and fish numbers are rapidly declining. This video was made during a 4 week participatory video activity supported by The Nature Conservancy’s climate adaptation program and funded by Australia-Aid.
