Embracing Climate Resiliency— How to Disaster Season 5
“We didn’t understand the degree to which the constant climate crisis would also layer over the current health crisis that we were having. And so, it’s more important than ever that we find the best minds and best practices to bring to you so that you are resilient.” —Jennifer Thompson
Welcome aboard to Season 5 of the How to Disaster Podcast!
When we launched this podcast a couple of years ago, we could not have foreseen the escalation of global warming in such a short span. Climate change is no longer a distant reality, and its impacts are being felt across the globe. Our health, economy, and social structures are experiencing unprecedented strain due to these cascading crises.
This global challenge layered over our existing health crisis has made it apparent that we must act fast. And we believe that the key to surviving and thriving in this new environment lies in our ability to be resilient and adaptable.
Recognizing the interconnected nature of these issues has prompted us to shift our focus this season on exploring approaches to increase resilience whilst confronting both challenges.
For the past four seasons, we’ve brought extraordinary minds who are truly making strides in battling climate-based disasters. This season, we aim to unleash an exciting lineup of enthusiasts who have rolled up their sleeves and faced these challenges head-on to make a lasting impact.
We are grateful for the unwavering support you have shown us throughout the past seasons. Your encouragement and engagement have fueled our passion to provide you with the best resources for navigating through challenging times. Our commitment remains steadfast in delivering valuable content that equips you with the knowledge and skills to handle disasters effectively.
We encourage you to tune in to our upcoming episodes, like, and share them with others. We value your feedback and take it seriously as we continuously work towards refining our content and delivering a tailored experience that meets your expectations.
