Can we turn the feeling of helplessness into strength by simply being silent?
Meditation is associated with self development, but for Iselin Shumba it proved to also contain a form of protest. Every Monday she sits in front of the parliament in silence until the politician will hear the coming generation’s rightful claim to a brighter future. “Shumba” means lion, and a lion’s roar can be heard at 9 kilometers distance. However, this lion’s roar is silent. Iselin Shumba is an actress, debater, and climate activist. She is coming to Arendal to perform a poem and challenge the current climate debate. This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at
