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 listen 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 Nadarev “Yeb” Saño, the Executive Director of Greenpeace Southeast Asia who also serves on the Advisory Board of 350.org. Born and raised in Manila in the Philippines, Yeb was formerly the chief negotiator for his national climate delegation. This week, he’s in Boulder, Colorado, USA, for the United Nations Global Climate and Human Rights Summit called Right Here Right Now, though the episode will air in the new year. It's an incredible honor to be talking with you today.
