Poetry of Impact: Podcast on Climate, Connection and Community

Updated: Jan 20



As we launch into global conversations about the planet in Montreal at #cop15, our friends at Poetry of Impact just released a conversation I am humbled to have been a part of. It was such a pleasure spending an hour with Gino Dante Borges, the philosopher poet of impact and Teal Brown Zimring, who is so inspiring with her reflections on the art of the possible. Have a listen, share your perspectives, and join us for the most important effort for the future of humanity.
