    Protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Protecting the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge

    Every year, the porcupine caribou herd embarks on the longest land mammal migration in the world, covering over 2400 km from the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and into Alaska. Oil and gas development in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge threatens the food security, spiritual and cultural foundation of the Indigenous Gwich'in Nation of Alaska and Canada.

    This week we talk to Lorraine Netro, an Elder of the Vuntut Gwitchin First Nation, who serves on the Board of Directors of the Gwich’in Steering Committee. We talk about the advocacy campaign to save the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge and Porcupine Caribou from development, the importance of the Porcupine Caribou to the Gwich’in, and the impact development would have to the culture and food security of the Gwich’in Nation.

    Universal Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Benefits Everyone 

    Universal Access to Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights Benefits Everyone 

    Universal access to sexual and reproductive health (SRHR) is pivotal to improving the quality of life for everyone. It is argued that any effort to encourage sustainable growth must prioritize the health and well-being of women and girls. Inequalities between and within countries persist and will continue to limit attaining the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), particularly in areas of health, education, and gender equality.

    In this week’s episode, we explore the issue of the need for universal access to sexual and reproductive health and rights for women and girls with Julian Muturia, a Gender Specialist at World Renew.

    Prioritizing Mental Health within the Sustainable Development Goals

    Prioritizing Mental Health within the Sustainable Development Goals

    To address the global challenges that we face such as poverty, natural disasters, and conflicts, in a way that leaves no one behind, we need to prioritize mental health. Poor mental health and insufficient resources for mental health pose a challenge to our individual and collective capacities to work towards achieving the sustainable development goals.

    We explore this issue further with our two guests relating to their work, our first guest Ambassador Freddy Wangabo Mwenengabo, Executive Director of the East and Central African Association for Indigenous Rights (ECAAIR) to discuss the need for a global prioritization on mental health, the inequities posed in the area to marginalized community and the work of the ECAAIR in their interventions at addressing mental health.
