The following is 26 year old poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner’s poem which she used to address the Opening Ceremony of the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit this week.  Ms. Jetnil-Kijiner is from the Marshall Islands. She was selected from among over 500 civil society candidates in an open, global nomination process conducted by the UN Non-Governmental Liaison Service.
