45. Taking Action and Remaining Optimistic About the Climate With Ariel Maldonado
Show Notes

Have you ever dove down the rabbit hole of climate change and came up for air more depressed and hopeless than you did before you dove in? 

Sometimes it can feel overwhelming to look at the state of our planet and all the action that needs to be taken to correct it. It can paralyze us so much that we end up doing nothing and taking zero steps in our journey - because what’s the point? 

I think we can all relate to this feeling, so today, I brought on Ariel Maldonado to talk to us about climate optimism and how we can take collective climate action to improve the state of our planet. 

She is a ray of sunshine and a breath of fresh air in this space, and I can’t wait to share her with you.  

You won’t want to miss this episode, where we discuss, 

  • How "Go Green Save Green" came to be
  • The importance of mixing humour and seriousness when educating on sustainability practices
  • How to have hard conversations around climate change
  • What is climate optimism, and why is it important?
  • The importance of collective action?
  • How can you engage in collective action in your community

You’ll discover that and so much more in this episode.
