Climate Courage & Crisis Communication:

Have you noticed the massive shift going on? We no longer talk about climate change as an abstract, future threat. We are in a climate crisis, and are beginning to connect this fact deeply to our lives and deeds.

Children go on school strike, some politicians propose serious legislation, newspapers replace ”change” with ”crisis”, professionals quit their traditional careers to work for the climate, and social media becomes a tool for influence, not increased consumption. Remarkably often, the leading voices in this transition are female. They move beyond the cynicism of smart and strategic communication and politics to embrace personal courage, devotion, and empathy as the way forward.

Welcome to a show where we explore how women show the way towards a new paradigm of climate courage and crisis communication.

Welcome to November's broadcast!
