Leigh Baker - "Hacking Human Systems for Climate Progress"

11/14/2018
More
Leigh Baker is a very experienced veteran of the manufacturing industry, and brings this grounded, realistic thinking to sustainability. She's a brilliant guest, a quick-wit, and out-of-the-box thinker, and her first episode (https://www.climactic.fm/20) with us was a listener favourite. Now, Leigh is back to talk to us about human systems, the way we make decisions as human beings, and how we can effectively influence people towards sustainability, and away from the climate crisis.

Tim Lo Surdo — "Campaigners are people that believe in a better world"

11/7/2018
More
Tim has done a lot in 24 years. He's been part of AYCC, ultimately leading one of their groups. He's worked on Senate campaigns across Australia. Jhatkaa, the Getup of India, brought him over to work in Bangalore. Now he's in Melbourne, and doing big things. This is a powerful episode of the show where Tim's passion is on full display. And his story is very replicable. Check out Kate's (climactic.fm/aoc6) episode out this week as well for a real both sides of the coin look at campaigning and...

10/20/2018
More
After an absolutely full-on week for the Act On Climate team, we kick back and talk about the week's events in a more laid-back style. Halfway through the series, and the election run-up, and the nature of the campaign is starting to change. We wrap up the big events and actions AoC had planned, and executed, and note that the action now pivots to a more nimble, reactive role. Stay tuned for a lot of updates, but now, they'll be surprises! Special Guest: Leigh Ewbank.

Heidi Taylor — "Tangaroa Blue, marine debris forensics, and becoming a beach litter detective"

10/3/2018
More
This is quite possibly one of the most relatable and urgent episodes of Climactic yet. Heidi Taylor is, to people who know of her, inspirational, almost to the point of folk hero status. But when Heidi sits down with Mark, she shows she's much more than an inspiring figure, she's a living, breathing, inspiring human. Heidi founded Tangaroa Blue because of personal concern for the seas, where she practised her career as a dive instructor. But she's a powerful example of how to take a personal...

ShareWaste - "Creating value, and friendships, from kitchen waste"

9/26/2018
More
This week Climactic is happy to have the founders of ShareWaste, an amazing app that's connecting and creating communities through the simple act of sharing organic waste. We all produce it, it's our kitchen scraps, our yard clippings, our garden waste. And, in proving that "one's trash is another's treasure" what may be waste to us, may be gold to others. Australia, just like many other countries, but especially on our arid continent, has a serious organic material shortage, especially in...

9/19/2018
More
Chan and Lap are the two founders of Effect the Change, a YouTube channel that spreads useful information about sustainability, in a fun and easy way. This episode is a lot more light-hearted than previous interviews. It's obvious that Chan and Lap enjoy what they're doing, and it's quite refreshing. If we can find ways to do good while having this much fun, well, that makes it all the more personally sustainable. Special Guests: Chanaka Ruw and Lap Thai.

Let's discuss: How best can I help?

9/12/2018
More
We've noticed a theme emerging from our first twenty or so episodes, and we're taking an episode to break it down. We all want to do our part, and live sustainable lives, but is that enough? Or would our efforts be better spent pressuring lawmakers, companies, and communities to change their practices? Should we instead be focussed on altering the systems we live in, rather than the way we live within those systems? Please join us as we attempt to bring some clarity to the biggest question:...

Phil Wilkinson — "Reversing Global Warming with HVAC&R and Drawdown"

9/5/2018
More
Phil is a leader in the HVAC&R (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning & Regfrigeration) industry, the largely invisible sector that powers our modern world. Without heating, cooling, and refrigeration, Australia would a very different place. But HVAC&R has done more than just allow progress, it also consumes a huge amount of electricity, and handles and is responsible for some of the most powerful greenhouse gases in the world. Phil, in his work at the industry advocate AIRAH, is humanising...
