In today’s episode of Let’s Get Changed, we speak with Dr. Flávia Neves Maia, co-founder and Executive Director of Filha Do Sol, a Brazil-based nonprofit organization working with women at the frontlines of the climate crisis. We speak about the very real impacts of the climate crisis as Dr. Maia recalls how her own ancestors lived and died amidst great droughts in the Brazilian Northeast and themselves experienced climate-driven migration. We talk about a core feminist values set that helps guide the work of Filha Do Sol, the importance of relationship building and healing as critical in addressing climate issues, and the emerging Women’s Climate School now taking shape under Filha do Sol’s leadership to help provide green jobs, economic independence and much more to women in the tropics. Lot’s of good stuff to unpack here — tune in!
