Updated 10 June 2014, 8:09 AEST

Papua New Guinea climate change warrior Latin N'Drihin has been put behind bars, willingly.

The Manus Island man turned himself over to police for "destroying and abusing God's creation" and says other people are doing the same.

Mr N'Drihin will be released from incarceration in time to prepare for his five-year walk across the globe, which he hopes will spread his message about climate action.

Presenter: Richard Ewart

Speaker: Latin N'Drihin, climate change activist from Papua New Guinea
