Has the Climate Crisis got you feeling overwhelmed, devastated, despairing, angry, or even apathetic?
The Possibility Project Podcast is my own effort to move through these feelings, and to create positive action in my life, as I seek to find light and hope in our current calamity. It is my aim that as you listen to these interviews, you too will find ways to feel empowered to contribute in a positive way to righting the wrongs of our past. What if we can turn this crisis into a pathway towards the possibilities of a better way of life, for us, our children, and the whole world?
In this show Sarah Knight, Ocean Scientist, Science Communicator and Energy Healer, talks to scientists, healers, artists, thinkers, and activists, and others, as she seeks out the highest possibilities for this planet and its inhabitants in these changing times.
Is there a collective opportunity in the COVID-19 induced global shut-down? Can we hold on to the “urgency” that is being generated right now to create the lasting change that we need? What if we are getting a jump start into healing our relationship with the earth, each other, and the more-than-human beings that we share this land with? These are some of the questions that Ayana Young puts forward in this episode, in her conversation with host Sarah Knight, while providing some inspiring insights into how we can show up, right now, to do what is being asked of us. Ayana Young is a podcast and radio personality specializing in intersectional environmental and social justice, deep ecology and land-based restoration. Along with other female millennials, she runs the non-profit organization “For The Wild” – an organization whose work is a response to the destruction left in the wake of capitalist industry, amplifying voices from the grassroots and featuring thought-leaders at the forefront of environmental, artistic, scientific, political and cultural shift.
Cloughjordan EcoVillage: Building Community, Sustainability and Resiliency. Possibility Podcast Session 17
Is the community level the most suitable one for us to take action towards a better, more sustainable future? Davie Philip, founding member of Cloughjordan EcoVillage in Ireland certainly thinks so. In this episode, host Sarah Knight asks Davie to share his 20 year journey in establishing "The Village", which is now a thriving 55-home ecovillage complete with a planted woodland, community farm, and soon-to-be constructed wetland. Fully integrated into the larger rural village of Cloughjordan, "The Village" is working with other networks and projects across Europe and around the world to share what they have learned, in the hopes that people everywhere will start to integrate some of the principles and practices in to their lives. From joining a CSA (community supported agriculture) scheme with a local organic farmer to looking to start a group of like-minded people to move towards a co-housing or ecovillage way of living, Davie shares a multitude of ways that we can make a start.
