The Climate Front Line is a show that engages social movement & industry leaders as well as artists. Each conversation changes the narrative by centering the interest and needs of communities at the front line of climate change.

Today's episode outlines 5 lessons learned from engaging community leaders on climate change and environmental justice. They are:

  1. Language - Carbon
  2. Changing narratives - not just one- Understanding the struggles of all people
  3. Education and awareness building are different
  4. Climate Change western concept
  5. There is no silver bullet

What land do you live on?

Find out who were the natives people of the land that you are currently at by utilizing this tool to identify some of the nations. While the map also includes other parts of the world outside of Turtle Island, it is important to note that this is just a tool and should not be used as ends meet to assert or justify acknowledgement of natives peoples.

If you are just starting your journey, feel free to reach out and I am happy to see how I can be of assistance! We are all in this healing journey together!
