Listen on

Episode notes

How can we get urgent climate action that is also just? In this episode we hear from long standing Indigenous defender Victoria Tauli-Corpuz on why we need to put indigenous perspectives central in tackling climate change and what that means for climate justice.
From mobilizing her own community in the Philippines against destructive dams and dictatorship to serving as a UN Special Rapporteur on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, her mission has not changed: to bring Indigenous voices and knowledge into decision-making. How to combine insider and outsider roles to get tangible results? And how to make sure commitments actually lead to change for Indigenous peoples and our planet? Tune in for Indigenous lessons for climate justice!
