Much of what you hear about the environment these days is not encouraging. One million species face possible extinction. We have until 2030 to avoid unprecedented catastrophe. The poorest of the poor are the ones who will suffer the most.
So, is there a case for hope?
It's a question worth asking. Without hope, how can we even move forward?
We explore the case for hope with Plant With Purpose's executive director Scott Sabin. Birori Gaparani, from Plant With Purpose's team in the Democratic Republic of Congo also joins. We learn from Kent Annan, author of the book You Welcomed Me and cofounder of Haiti Partners. And we talk to our previous guests from throughout this season about what gives them hope.
Welcome to the Grassroots Podcast, a Plant With Purpose production. This show features global conversations about the environmental challenges we’re facing and what ordinary people are doing to in response. 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.
