Politics and Society African Crossroads’ climate conference showcases organic maximalism and radical inclusion

African Crossroads’ climate-themed fourth edition, “Ecoexistence: A Manifesto”, held on October 14 and 15, was a testament of radical inclusion, featuring voices of change from townships, villages, universities, creative hubs and even the natural elements.
