You can often learn a lot from your parents if you take the time to listen to their stories and experiences. Sophia Osborne calls up her dad, David Osborne, and the two of them talk about living an environmentally-conscious life in a place where the natural world still seems relatively untouched. David’s actions and thoughtfulness have left Sophia (and the rest of us at Terra Informa) inspired, and we hope this interview makes you feel the same!

Last week, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau removed ‘climate change’ from the name of the ‘Environment, Climate Change and Energy’ cabinet committee, renaming it the ‘Environment and Clean Growth’ committee. So we went to our archives to unearth a piece that looks at the how the environment and economy interact. David Suzuki and Jeff Rubin talked to Terra Informer Hamdi Assawi in 2012 when they were touring Rubin’s book “The End of Growth”.

This week, we bring you two interviews from our archive with environmental activists from around the world. First, we pulled a story about activist Tzeporah Berman, who we talked to about bringing together activists and corporate interests. After that, we revisit the time we interviewed another prolific environmental activist, Dr. Vandana Shiva, a physicist, ecologist and author from India. We talked to Shiva about her work, seed heritage, and the paradigm shift that she sees as necessary for ecological and community well-being.

This week, we’re excited to air an interview done by fellow CJSR star Nigel Henri Robinson, host of the CJSR show Acimowin, who spoke with the English Bay Grandmothers about their work fighting against oil extraction and development on the Cold Lake First Nations.
While we were preparing for this show we were surrounded by wildfire smoke in Edmonton that has turned the city disturbingly apocalyptic. We were inspired to air an archive story from 2012 about light pollution and sustainable lighting to cap off the episode.
