Episode notes

Here is my chat with Rodrigo Echecopar, founder of Nuestra America Verde.

Rodrigo has just got back from COP26 and he told me about his takeaways of the event. But the main topic of our conversations was how Latin America needs a democratic green revolution. He said the path  transition to a more green economy is through international collaboration between Latin American countries.

We also talked about despite Brazil being a cornerstone country it failed to show up in many conversation and sustainability conversations.

Also Rodrigo explained what green populism is - a strategy in politics for change.
