It Threatens the Most Vulnerable
Restoring our environment is an urgent need. Those of us who live in more privileged parts of the world might be tempted to think of climate change as a future threat, but it’s effects are already here and they threaten the world’s most vulnerable communities. In this episode, we’ll talk to Dr. Paul Robinson from The Congo Initiative. Dr. Robinson spent decades living among and researching the Gabra nomads. An East African pastoral tribe who rely on predicting rain for their survival. We also talk to Veronica Squires and Breanna Lathrop from Good Samaritan Hospital in Atlanta. They are the co-authors of the book How Neighborhoods Make Us Sick, and shed light on how the poor and marginalized suffer from social determinants. Welcome to the Grassroots Podcast, a Plant With Purpose production. This show features global conversations about the environmental challenges we’re facing, what ordinary people are doing in response, and how this connects to our Christian faith. We’re going beyond doom-and-gloom. We’re looking at root causes, talking to people on the frontlines, and asking ourselves what we can do. There are reasons to be concerned, but there is also a case for hope. Find out more at Plant With Purpose.
