Storyboard Text

  • The new president
  • The people who have joined the Aliance Of Small Islands
  • The group of representatives from the Alliance of Small Islands are pushing for faster and better action to migrate and if possible adapt to climate change. The Alliance Of Small Islands is a group made up of small islands that are at risk of rising sea levels and other climate change related issues.
  • The old president
  • The old president, Mohamed Nasheed, wanted to set an example by making the Maldives carbon neutral within a decade by moving to wind and solar power.
  • He thinks it is important to transform the Maldives into a major tourist destination. This would mean mass tourism and mega-developments rather than relying on solar power and carbon neutrality. Supposedly he has been negotiating to sell an entire atoll with 19 coral islands and dozens of reefs and lagoons to the Saudi royal family for $10bn. He outlined plans to geo-engineer artificial islands, relocate populations and attract millions more tourists by creating 50 more resorts.
