Green Economy Heroes podcast

Looking for some hope in hard times? Don't miss my new podcast on Green Economy Heroes.

Since 2015, I’ve talked with hundreds of audiences across Canada about the climate crisis. A few years ago, most audiences were just learning that we have a crisis. Today, you probably already know that. Now you are more likely to be wondering, is it too late? Where can we find some hope?

The only recipe I know for hope is to first look the facts in the face, and to then work with other people on concrete action. Because the climate crisis affects almost everything, there are a huge number of ways to take action. The good news is that there are amazing people in Canada who are making a living doing exactly that. They are building the green economy that we need to reduce our climate pollution, creating green jobs and helping us get ready for what’s coming.

Each Green Economy Hero podcast features someone you’ll enjoy getting to know. We will explore who they are, what their business are doing, and how it is making a difference. We will hear about their challenges, their successes, and their dreams. And we’ll learn their advice on how you too can start and build a green business.
