Daughters for Earth: Women and the Climate Change Movement Panel | Bioneers 2022
Women all over the globe, especially in the “developing world,” are the ones who most often bear the brunt of having to contend with the radical disruptions visited upon their families and communities by climate change and environmental degradation, yet women’s voices are far too often ignored. Furthermore, climate change and physical and psycho-spiritual health are almost always discussed as separate issues, but the personal and the political, the heart and the mind are not just interconnected, they are all one. In this session, a panel of leading women activists will explore the impact of climate change on women and how to assure their full inclusion in all climate solutions, how these struggles relate to the personal search for healing, and what it will take to create authentic global change. With: Zainab Salbi, co-founder, Daughters for Earth; Nina Simons, co-founder, Bioneers; Justin Winters, co-founder and Executive Director, One Earth; Kahea Pacheco, Co-Director, Women’s Earth Alliance (WEA); Helena Gualinga, co-founder of Polluters Out.

Daughters for Earth | Bioneers 2022 Conference
Saturday, May 14th at 10:30am PT
As climate change and the destruction of Earth’s lands, waters and wildlife accelerate, women around the world are the most impacted, but they are also very often the frontline warriors fighting to protect our future. Unfortunately, their work and leadership are often not seen, appreciated, or funded. In order to address that marginalization, female leaders in the women’s rights, environmental and philanthropic sectors came together to found Daughters for Earth (under the auspices of the visionary philanthropic organization, One Earth). Daughters for Earth co-founder Zainab Salbi will explore the interconnection between our personal search for healing and how we face the challenges of climate change.  

'Life Lived Wild' with Rick Ridgeway | Utah
Tuesday, May 10th at 6:30pm MT
One Earth chair Rick Ridgeway calculates that he’s spent more than five years of his life sleeping in tents: Whether at elevation or raising a family at sea level, those years taught him, he writes in his new book Life Lived Wild, “to distinguish matters of consequence from matters of inconsequence.” Some of his adventures made news: the first American ascent of K2; the first traverse of Borneo; the first crossing on foot of a corner of Tibet so remote no outsider had ever seen it. In the book, he also describes his journey from an outdoor adventurer to an unlikely environmental activist. Listen to the latest interview with Utah Public Radio below. On Tuesday, May 10th, 6:30pm MT, the Salt Lake City Patagonia store will host Rick Ridgeway for a presentation on his new book - RSVP required.
