In this episode, we talk to environmental activistsfrom Colombia, Pakistan and Zimbabwe about why the climate crisis is a feministissue and why the climate justice movement must embrace intersectionality inorder to affect more equitable change. We hear why we must do more than justlisten to climate activists calling out the lack of political will to keepfossil fuels in the ground, and instead listen to those on the ground who bring extensive knowledge and experience ofclimate change first hand. We discuss how eco-feminist spaces online can protectclimate activists from harassment, how digital storytelling can improve thelives of those most vulnerable to environmental injustices, what the limits ofsocial media are in light of the digital divide, and how cultivating a cultureof care within the climate justice movement - both online and offline - is bothnecessary and beneficial to its goals.
