    But Next Time: "Higher Ground"

    But Next Time: "Higher Ground"

    But Next Time: "Higher Ground" On this week's episode of Shareable's The Response podcast, we’re continuing to delve into community-rooted responses to disasters with "Higher Ground," part four of BUT NEXT TIME, a limited-run podcast that spotlights powerful stories of community-led disaster prevention and recovery.
     
    In this episode of The Response we’ll travel to Houston, Texas, with Chrishelle Palay and Rose Arrieta, hosts of But Next Time, to meet these changemakers in the final episode of their limited-run podcast.
    When communities face the aftermath of catastrophes, what does it take to ensure that the next time will be different? 
    In Houston, it takes a city council member who bicycles in her neighborhood to hear from constituents about what they need most. It takes 12 moms who organize to take legal action against the landlords that have kept their families in moldy, substandard apartments. And it takes a city official who blows the whistle on corrupt and dangerous practices related to housing policy.

    Listen in to hear their stories as they work tirelessly to ensure that next time will be different.

    Whether they are educating their communities, building back power grids, or bringing their fight to the courtroom, these community leaders are working together to shape the healthier future we all deserve. 
    Listen in to hear their stories as they work tirelessly to ensure that next time will be different.
    To go deeper into some of the ongoing mutual aid projects in Puerto Rico that emerged following Hurricane Maria, our award-winning documentary film, “The Response: How Puerto Ricans Are Restoring Power to the People,” is now available on YouTube with Spanish, French, and Portuguese subtitles (in addition to the original version in English).

    But Next Time: "From the Ashes"

    But Next Time: "From the Ashes" On this week's episode of Shareable's The Response podcast, we’re continuing to delve into community-rooted responses to disasters in California, from the fires to the pandemic with "From the Ashes," part two of BUT NEXT TIME, a limited-run podcast that spotlights powerful stories of community-led disaster prevention and recovery
    Following climate-fueled wildfires and the pandemic, people banded together to build mutual aid networks, translate emergency messages in Spanish and indigenous languages, and disseminate crucial recovery information to their communities. In Sonoma County organizers hit the fields with information about where to get food, shelter, and support. In San Francisco, they set up a strong response to COVID-19 in the city’s Mission District.
    Tune in to hear how these leaders act collectively to confront those in power, work for justice before and after disaster, and together answer one vital question: how can next time be different?

    Eleni Myrivili, Chief Heat Officer for the City of Athens, Greece

    The Response is an award-winning documentary film, book, and podcast series from Shareable.net exploring how communities are building collective resilience in the wake of disasters with host Tom Llewellyn. 
    A clear and present danger awaits our species if we are unable to keep global temperature below the 1.5 degrees Celsius rise that climate scientists have identified as proverbial the line in the sand. Even at current levels things are looking and feeling pretty dire.
    But it’s not all doom and gloom, significant actions are being taken at the city level in spite of the mostly disappointing (inter)national policies coming out of COP26. 
    On this week's episode, The Response producer Robert Raymond interviews Eleni Myrivili, the first Chief Heat Officer for the City of Athens, Greece.

Brilliant series!

Tom is a compelling storyteller who brings a wealth of information together. His ideas and experiences are cutting edge and yet common sense. He is courageous and a real leader. I’ve learned a great deal from him and am grateful he’s putting these stories into the public realm to inspire a wider audience. Recommended
