The Climate Pod

Nov 16, 2022

With COP27 still underway, this week, we talk to two young leaders at the conference pushing global efforts on climate action. Joining us this week:

Azeez Abubakar, Partnerships and Engagement Chair of the Commonwealth Youth Climate Change Network, founder and executive director Climate Education Initiative Project.

Mitzi Jonelle Tan, Climate justice activist with Youth Advocates for Climate Action Philippines and Fridays For Future Philippines. 

They tell us about their experience at COP27, what they hope to see accomplished this week, and how they are holding world leaders accountable to combat the crisis. 

Also, we review the midterm election results and what it means for climate action in the US.
