Climate change often feels like an insurmountable problem. But there are a lot of truly amazing people working on solutions. One of the great places bringing stories of hope and inspiration is the podcast of former Irish President Mary Robinson and comedian Maeve Higgins. Over the course of two seasons worth of episodes (and counting), they interview remarkable women who are undertaking powerful actions in the pursuit of climate justice. From Christina Figueres (Executive Secretary of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change 2010-2016) to Dalee Sambo Dorough (Chair of the Inuit Circumpolar Council, and former chair of the UN Permanent Forum on Indigenous Rights), their guests have powerful insights to offer.
It’s hard to pick out a single episode, but S02E04 “A Second Chance at Life” is a great place to start. “What will it take to transition to renewable energy, and what can we learn from both indigenous peoples and new technology?” Listen to find out.
