On Friday, March 15, 2019, I went to the Fridays For Future climate protest in Berlin with my husband. The protest was very emotional for me. In this episode, I talk about the protest and how such an action affects my carbon “handprint,” not just my carbon footprint.
You can listen to the episode here:
I was struck by a few things: how urgent a protest led by students and full of children and babies made climate action for me, despite the fact that I have been a sustainability professional for basically the past 10 years. And that such a protest put me on the outside: I am no longer a young person whose future is being stolen, but old enough to be at least partially responsible for the mess we’re in.
