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.

Would you be willing to hang out with wolves in the Arctic? How about spending your time following Caribou around? This week on Terra Informa, we pay our respects to the late Farley Mowat, environmentalist extraordinaire (who happens to be a friend to the wolves.) And, we’ve got your environmental lit covered this summer with our new column, Summer Reading, kicking it off with the book Being Caribou by Karsten Heuer.

This week, Terra Informa focuses on environmental activism in the lead-up to the Sochi Olympics. We speak with Greenpeace activists dealing with an oppressive Russian government, as well as a Canadian activist dealing with the label of “eco-terrorism.” Then, we’ll learn something thousands of Canadians have had to do in the past month due to harsh winter weather—except we’ll learn from the pros. How to survive in winter without electricity, only on Terra Informa.
At the G8 summit in 2007, Greenpeace found a way to make their voice heard about the issue of global warming.
