1,001 Voices on Climate Change
It’s official: 2020 will be remembered as the year when apocalyptic climate predictions finally came true. Catastrophic wildfires, relentless hurricanes, melting permafrost, and coastal flooding have given us a taste of what some communities have already been living with for far too long. Yet we don’t often hear the voices of the people most affected. Journalist Devi Lockwood set out to change that.

In 1,001 Voices on Climate Change, Lockwood travels the world, often by bicycle, collecting first-person accounts of climate change.

The nationally-syndicated public radio show & podcast and the Sustainable Solutions Lab present a virtual conversation with Lockwood, as part of the Living on Earth Book Club.
