Welcome to Communicating Care: a podcast of the Just Transition Collaborative at the University of Colorado Boulder where we talk about the ways environmental and climate justice advocacy are motivated by, express, and foster care. On this podcast we listened more deeply to people who have made headlines for making a difference to learn from their insights for successful creative climate communication and behavior change.
I'm the host, Professor Phaedra Pezzullo. Today, our guest is Dr. Shahriar Hossain, a journalist, ecologist, and social justice advocate. Born in Bangladesh, he has been a pivotal leader in the global anti-plastic movement. Hossain is one of those public intellectuals that seems to have lived a hundred lives already. In brief, he is a reporter and editor, including membership in the Society for Environmental Journalists. He also has earned degrees in international relationships and a PhD journalism in India, as well as a PhD in environmental studies from Duke University. He has served as visiting faculty and a diplomat globally. He also is the founder and director of the Environment and Social Development Organization (ESDO) since 1990.
