Om podcasten

Klimatförändringarna ställer allt på ända. Jag är förvånad över medias näst intill obefintliga bevakning och politikernas ointresse att diskutera den största utmaningen. Samtidigt stöter jag allt oftare på medmänniskor som engagerar sig på olika sätt. De inger hopp! I Klimatpodden får du möta aktivister, forskare, ekobeställare, entreprenörer och andra som agerar för att stoppa klimatförändringarna.
