This is our first in a series of episodes that reflect how the events we are living through today will impact the struggle to save the planet for tomorrow. We’ll interview a host of professionals form academia, economics, venture capital, institutional investment, advocacy and activism to give context to where we stand in our efforts to combat climate change. We’re thrilled to kick off the series on Earth Day with Jackie Ostfeld, Director of the Sierra Club’s Outdoors for All.
In this episode Jackie and Lex talk about the advocacy work currently underway at the Sierra Club, particularly what they are doing to protect communities at risk and expand equal access to the outdoors. Right now we’re all living in a new, smaller world, but that won’t last forever. We talk about how our collective efforts to combat corona through social distancing has impact the work Sierra Club’s activism and what they’ve done to adapt. Briefly, we talk a walk back into a historical context, touching on the legacy left by Sierra Club founder John Muir, both positive and checkered. And finally, Jackie leaves us with a message of optimism for the future.
