    16: Writing Climate Stories with Padma Perez and Mabi David

    16: Writing Climate Stories with Padma Perez and Mabi David

    #MUNIonThis: What is the role of stories in tackling our climate crisis? How might we think about writing the stories we choose to tell?

    In this episode, we have a conversation with Padma Perez, strategist for creative collaborations of Agam Agenda - a place to reimagine climate conversations through stories and art, and host of the Agam the Climate Podcast (which Muni's Jen Horn joined for an episode), and Mabi David, co-editor of Makisawsaw, a collection of essays on food and political involvement, and the partnerships and advocacy lead of Good Food Community. Together, we explore how writing can be used as a tool to bring people together, not only to acknowledge our fears, but also help us imagine better futures.

    After listening, you may be inspired to take part in our #LettersFromNature project, and join us on 15 May 2021, 4:00-5:30pm for Letters From Nature: a reflective & creative session together with Padma and Mabi and our other friends from Agam and Habilin. Sign up to join this gathering here.

    15: Gender, Conservation & Power with KM Reyes and Maya Quirino

    15: Gender, Conservation & Power with KM Reyes and Maya Quirino

    #MUNIonThis: What's it like being a woman in conservation? And what difference does it make when women lead?

    In this episode, we have a personal conversation with two compassionately powerful guests: KM Reyes, co-founder of the women-led, youth environmental nonprofit, Centre for Sustainability PH, and Maya Quirino, advocacy coordinator of the Legal Rights and Natural Resources Center leading the #GreenprintPH campaign. We chat with them about gender and how that influences the power they wield in their work in environmental conservation, restoration and policy.

    Furthermore, women leaders create so much impactful change within their families and communities in ways that are not always acknowledged or valued. So on 27 March 2021 we're also holding space for womxn working in ecosystem restoration—whether in conservation or regenerative agriculture, in advocacy or environmental policy, in community development, in environmental education, in art and storytelling, and so on—with the hopes that by connecting or reconnecting with one another, we can support each other in appreciating our strengths as women and reclaiming our power. Express your interest to join this event here. Guest list will be finalized by 25 March 2021.

    What has 2020 been like for you? And what lessons are you bringing in from the past year into your intentions for 2021? In this episode, we talked about living slow, connecting with nature, dealing with difficult truths, embracing imperfection, being present and having courage, among other insights. 



    Using reflection prompts to share our thoughts and feelings with each other, we also invite you to use these prompts, and spark more meaningful conversations with yourself, and maybe your friends and loved ones too. 



    You can also join us for an evening of reflection on January 29, 6-8PM for Reconnect & Regenerate, an intimate Muni community gathering where we'll be holding space for introspection, active listening and sharing, to help you reconnect with yourself, others and the planet. Express your interest to join this event here. Guest list will be finalized by January 25, 2021.

    13: Stories of Healing with Beth de Castro and Gela Petines

    What journeys do we take towards healing, and what role does reconnection play in that? Coming from our previous episode on Stories of Self-love, we journey further into mental health and well-being, with two women who spoke to us openly about their experiences with depression and suicide. Psychologist and farmer Elizabeth de Castro, and entrepreneur and freediver Gela Petines share their experiences with mental health, and finding healing by reconnecting with themselves, with others, and with nature.  

    DISCLAIMER: We'll be exploring some sensitive topics in this episode, so if you don't feel like you're in the best headspace to handle it at the moment, you may consider listening to this episode at another time when you are more able.

    12: Stories of Self-love with Denise Alcantara, Jamie Dichaves and Bea Tulagan

    12: Stories of Self-love with Denise Alcantara, Jamie Dichaves and Bea Tulagan

    How might we be a bit more compassionate towards ourselves? The pandemic has changed life as we knew it, and we might think of this same time last year, and it feels like a whole other lifetime. The struggle we face in trying to function like our pre-COVID selves is an invisible and ongoing one for many.  So for this episode, we took some time to look inward, and invited three women working in sustainability to join us -- in doing a mental cleanup, not just to keep thoughts that spark joy, but to make peace with thoughts that don't serve us.

    Timestamps: 00:36 - Introductions and stories by Jen Horn and Ayen dela Torre; 06:41 - Information Overload by Denise Alcantara; 09:49 - Reconnecting with Myself and Others by Jamie Dichaves; 12:40 - The Ultimate Act of Resistance by Bea Tulagan

    11: Modern Activism with Katrina Stuart Santiago, Ria Atayde, Dora Dorado and Macoy Dubs

    11: Modern Activism with Katrina Stuart Santiago, Ria Atayde, Dora Dorado and Macoy Dubs

    What new types of activism are we seeing even while under quarantine? And how does today’s digital activism stack up to protests on the ground?

    In this episode, we listen to stories of individuals whose activism is ignited by their rage and frustration with the state of the nation, but it is also fueled by hope and love for our country and its people.

    We speak to actress Ria Atayde, whose career began with ABS-CBN, about the value of speaking up and influencing our circles to do the same, and then we talk to Katrina Stuart Santiago of @pagasa.ph about the necessary struggles of nation building. Between these interviews, you'll also hear briefly from political satirists and online personalities Macoy Dubs a.k.a. Auntie Julie and Dora Dorado about their stories of modern activism.
