1. Two years ago, the river washed away Geetu's home and land on Char Atra, a river island in Bangladesh. His family had to start again. But with his land gone, Geetu had no job, and no way to provide for his family – a devastating blow to a proud family man.

    Climate change is a reality for fishermen like Geetu. Whilst Bangladesh is a very poor country, these people are the poorest of the poor. Their life is hard, they depend on the water and yet it hurts them.

    Climate change is destroying lives here. Floods are deeper and longer lasting, rainfall is erratic, and river erosion is increasing. These changes are having a damaging impact on poor farmers and fishermen. When the floods last too long, their crops are destroyed, and they can’t fish.

  4. We donned our hand-me-down cardigans to make this viral for Oxfam in the UK, promoting a more sharing society and encourage people to host 'Swap It' parties - organised gatherings around the country where people could bring-and swap things they no longer want. Down with consumerism! Yeah!
