Climate solutions. The strategy of hope (Stage 3, Stage 4)
The strategy of hope that leads to collective action is the key to finding the new normal to find climate change solutions
As part of the Powerhouse’ 100 Climate Conversations weekly podcast, selected innovators have presented simple positive messages to schools about what can be done to save our planet.
In this episode meet Ecologist and Climate Councillor Professor Lesley Hughes from Macquarie University. She is a biodiversity expert who contributed to IPCC 4th and 5h assessment reports. She is a former Climate Commissioner and Founder of the Climate Council working on advocacy and interdisciplinary solutions, across biodiversity, vegetation, fashion and sport. She describes the strategy of hope and the benefits of collective action.
This is an edited recording of an interview on Friday 6 May 2022 from the Powerhouse.
