Nature loss and climate change are driven by values that people hold about themselves, other people and nature. So what can we do?
In this episode, I speak with Ife Kilimanjaro about her work with The Wind and The Warrior collective, where she is integrating spirituality, healing and environmental activism. Throughout our conversation, we explore the values necessary to healing our relationship with nature such as living as nature, balance, honouring our ancestors, justice, and uprooting hierarchy.
Ife also shares reflection questions for you to clarify your purpose in the environmental movement. No matter your life story, there’s a place for you in the environmental movement.
