We return to our conversation with Albuquerque community organizer Antonio Maestas to hear how organizing has become akin to spiritual action for him. "Social movements are spiritual, and the principles of environmental justice are doctrine."
In a conversation with Matt Goldberg, social psychologist and postdoctoral associate at the Yale Program on Climate Change Communication, we learn about the sometimes convoluted ways we defend our beliefs and discuss Matt's research in the field of climate communications.
In Episode Five we discuss the role of institutions in climate action. We visit Yale University to learn more about their school of forestry and environmental studies, and along the way have conversations about fossil fuel divestment and the role of the church.
In Episode 4, we consider the spiritual challenges of vanishing homelands and the ethical implications of borders by drawing out the connection between climate change and the movement of people worldwide.
In Episode Three, we visit Navajo Nation to discuss modern colonialism and its relationship to climate change. Hear how people are fighting for their health and cultural traditions in the midst of these challenges.
Join us in our Season Two premiere as we hear from Baptists, Yogis, activists, and homeowners, all learning to navigate the uncertain future of their community in the face of a proposed pipeline and compressor station. See more at https://shiftingclimates.com/season-2-ep-1/.
In our season finale, we revisit three interviews who help us understand the layered meanings of "being in community," especially when it comes to climate change. We depart from Season One with a set compass, fresh legs, and many unanswered questions.
