Coming Soon: Seedcast is Headed to U.N. Climate Talks in Egypt
Seedcast is headed to Egypt! Seedcast Producer Felipe Contreras and Executive Producer Tracy Rector share notes from the road (or, rather, the sky) on their way to COP27, the U.N. global climate talks happening in Sharm el-Sheikh. No Blue Zone or Green Zone passes here, but Felipe and Tracy will be showing up in solidarity with Indigenous leaders from around the world and hearing stories from the front lines of climate change. Indigenous land defenders and storytellers don’t make headlines enough at events like COP27 or the upcoming U.N. biodiversity talks in Montreal, unfortunately, but they are exactly the people who hold the knowledge we need to heal the world and the stories we center on Seedcast. Stay tuned for a whole episode filled with their stories later in November and more coverage in the coming months.
We want to hear your stories, too. What is at stake for YOU and YOUR communities in this moment of climate crisis, and what are you doing to fight for our future? Let us know by sending us an email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
