ISELIN SHUMBA | In Silence For Climate
Can we turn the feeling of helplessness into strength by simply being silent? Iselin Shumba is a Norwegian actor, commentator, feminist and climate activist. Every Monday she sits in silent climate protest in front of the Norwegian Parliament in silence for climate #IStillhetForKlima #InSilenceForClimate. Meditation is associated with self-development, but for Iselin Shumba it also appeared to contain some form of protest. In Ted x Arendal’s “Sustainable Silence” she talks about her commitment and her earnest prayer that politicians must listen to the demands of the world’s climate-striking youth. Shumba has had several roles both at the National Theater and in TV series for Netflix, and NRK.
