Speech on G20, Climate Change, Trump – in the context of Micronesia. @ Museum für Völkerkunde Hamburg
Jul 6 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
Larry and his crew in front of the Lamotrek Sail.

Rising Sea Levels are not a myth, nor is Climate Change – despite the fact that some may claim otherwise. The people of the Pacific Islands in the Federated States of Micronesia are first hand witnesses to the devastating effects these issue bring today – and can tell from experience what it means for their society and anyone around the globe. Especially those living near the sea.

It is our great pleasure to invite you for a evening speaking event with Mr. Larry Raigetal, founder of Waa´gey in Micronesia. Larry made the long trip from Micronesia to bring us the story behind this unique sail.

The mission of Waagey and Mr. Raigetal personally is the preservation of the regional arts and crafts and traditional craftsmanship, to maintain the cultural heritage of the Micronesian Pacific Islands. But also to create awareness for this mission to becoming harder and harder due to global influences (not to say “globalization”) and climate changes. In the region, the sea levels rise 1,5cm every year – a direct, measurable threat to the life on remote coral island atolls.

Mr. Raigetal and his team have created a sail on the remote island of Lamotrek, a sail made in the traditional way, which was almost a lost skill. This sail is touring the world and has reached Hamburg, to be on display at the Museum für Völkerkunde, where Larry will be kind enough to speak to us and give us some context on this interesting matter.

The timing could not be better since G20 happens the same week with Mr. Trump in town.

The event itself is FREE OF CHARGE, but REGISTRATION IS REQUIRED for attendance (please RSVP immediately to assistant@americanclub.de).

Please note that the Museum will charge the standard entry fees (EUR 8,50). The Museum is located at Rothenbaumchaussee 64.

Please also note that you should plan to arrive in good time, due to restrictions / demonstrations / road closures in the context of G20.

Due to the short notice of this event, there is no catering planned but the Museum hosts a Restaurant for snacks and drinks. Larry will be happy to mingle and answer any questions you may have in that set up.

You can already learn more by watching this video about Larry´s undertakings.
