"What We Need Now," the new monthly podcast by Greenpeace USA, is where you can learn about the work grassroots leaders are doing from the leaders themselves.
Each episode, the hosts explore a different topic related to the intersections of climate, racial and environmental justice, and our movement for a green and peaceful future, and pass the mic to local leaders who are fighting for the world we want to see.
Greenpeace is an independent, campaigning organization which uses non-violent, creative confrontation to expose global environmental problems, and to force the solutions which are essential to a green and peaceful future.
Non-Violent Direct Action
This month Rico, Lauren and guest Brianna Gibson, Director of Action Strategy and Training for The Blackout collective, discuss non-violent direct action and how it is and has been a critical part of pushing our movements forward.
Youth Vs Apocalypse
On this episode we discuss youth activism and leadership across the occupied United States.
Rico speaks with Isha Clarke and Dulce Arias from Youth Vs. Apocalypse about their work to tackle climate change and how they're using music to connect the 2020 election to their long term agenda, with their new song and video, "This is the Time."
On the first episode of What We Need Now, we explore Environmental racism and how Covid has made its impacts even greater. We interview multi-disciplinary performance artist, activist/community organizer and writer Adwoa Addae about why we need to feel to get through it all.
