On this podcast, we engage environmentalists, thought leaders, policy makers, professionals from all walks of life on the subject of climate action, climate finance, climate denials and every other climate-related theme. We hope that you’ll learn a thing or three from every episode of the Climate Talk Podcast and more importantly take actions towards making the world a more sustainable place to live in. Climate Talk is a monthly podcast hosted by Seyifunmi Adebote. Be sure to check in as often as you can as there will be a new episode published every last Wednesday monthly. This is a project by the International Climate Change Development Initiative and Media for Community Change Initiative.
CT0030 – Environmental practices and how they are shaped.
What do you think influences the search results you get on Google, Facebook, Bing, etc.? From restaurants to shopping malls, in what subtle ways are we being nudged to embrace (or not) certain environmental practices? Can we find improved ways to communicate climate change and is there a need for that?
How beautiful could our world be if we put into use just a fraction of the thousands of recommendations in research, journals and publications sitting in physical libraries and digital catalogues across the world?
My guest, Malte Rödl and I, on this episode of the Climate Talk Podcast reflect on various topics around environmental governance practices. Squeezed into 30 insightful minutes and using simple terms, find answers to these questions and many more on this episode of the Climate Talk Podcast.

My guest on this episode of the Climate Talk Podcast, Shaina Shay is an accomplished water professional who has spent more than a decade developing expertise in water policy and management conservation, and community outreach. She puts forward in simple terms the need to drive water and climate change conversation in ways that more actors can co-create solutions and perhaps this is the first time you get to hear about "the Internet of Water"
In this episode, you will learn about:
How the presence or absence of water is a key indicator of climate change.
How experts in different water industries approach challenges can inspire creative, impactful solutions.
How collaboration can help us to face the complex and changing water challenges we are faced with.
The universality of water issues globally and the role of policies in addressing water challenges.

CT0028: What can children do about the climate crisis?
What can children do about the climate crisis? Zach is my youngest guest on the Climate Talk Podcast and I must admit he is not just smart, he is very optimistic that little actions matter in making the world a better place.
Ever wonder why governments continue to subsidize fossil fuel despite knowing the danger it poses to people and our planet; ignoring cleaner options such as solar panels which have been functional for a long time. This was part of the exciting chat with Zach Fox Devol, we also spoke about how children make up an important stakeholder in the discourse about climate change. He opened me up to new knowledge and historical records of climate action in the United States of America.
More about my guest:
Zach Fox-DeVol is an extraordinary 11-year-old climate activist and the host of We The Children, a podcast about climate change and global warming solutions. Each week he interviews expert guests and tackles hard topics on caring for our planet, in a fun way from an 11-year-old’s perspective. When he is not working on podcasts, you can find Zach in California working on magic tricks, chess, 3D printing, and Rubik's cube.
