Show Notes

Harriet Shugarman is one of the leading voices in the parent climate movement, the founder of Climate Mama, and the award-winning author of the book How to Talk to Your Kids About Climate Change: Turning Angst into Action. Harriet joins host Sarah Spengeman to share her story--how, even though she had worked on climate change, she woke up to the climate emergency after she had her children. She talks about why she launched Climate Mama as a community to connect parents concerned about climate change and how she's seen the parent climate movement grow over the past decade.

Harriet and Sarah chat about what it means to be hopeful in the midst of a climate crisis, what women and mothers bring to the climate movement, and why centering indigenous voices and frontline communities is essential to solving climate change.

You won't want to miss Harriet sharing essential wisdom from her own book, along with her top children and adult book recommendations!
