Have you ever listened to a podcast or watched a documentary about what’s happening to our climate and thought, “Wow. This is huge. So, what do I do?” But then they don’t even tell you?
Introducing… our new podcast series, Heaps Better! Join hosts Jess Hamilton and Ash Berdebes to discover the most high-impact, zero-fluff things we can do to fight climate change. If you want to make things heaps better, but don’t know where to start — this podcast is for you!
Armed with hope, hard facts, and hilarious shenanigans, Ash and Jess are on a mission to turn their climate anxiety into climate action.
In the first episode, we’re going back to basics.
What even is climate change?
What do we need to do to stop it?
And how do we change the current system with collective action?
Thankfully – we begin to make sense of this climate mess with help from climate scientist Sarah Perkins-Kirkpatrick. Then, we hear from Greenpeace Australia Pacific CEO, David Ritter on collective action and the power of hope.
“We need to balance grief and belief simultaneously – and to use a very old adage, as long as there is life, there is hope. People working together can do just about anything!”
Did you know that we all have superpowers?
Yes, it’s true! In this episode, we’ll help you to figure out what your superpowers are, where you can use them (work, school,clubs), and how to make your mark in those spaces.
All you have to do is fill out your very own Power Map (sounds cool, right?). Map out your WHAT + WHERE + WHY to discover your amazing skills, connections and opportunities for awesome systems-changing climate action! You have the power to make things heaps better.
