Friday Special Blend
Friday September 3rd, 2021 with Susan Johnston
Devi Lockwood and stories about climate change

In our featured interview today, host Susan Johnston speaks with Devi Lockwood about her new book 1,001 Voices on Climate Change. Devi Lockwood spent five years traveling in 20 countries on six continents to document 1,001 stories on water & climate change. In 1,001 Voices on Climate Change, Lockwood travels the world, often by bicycle, collecting first-person accounts of climate change. She talks to Indigenous elders and youth in Fiji and Tuvalu about drought and disappearing coastlines, attends the U.N. climate conference in Morocco, and bikes the length of New Zealand and Australia, interviewing the people she meets about retreating glaciers, contaminated rivers, and wildfires. She rides through Thailand, Laos, and Cambodia to listen to marionette puppeteers and novice Buddhist monks. From Denmark and Sweden to China, Turkey, the Canadian Arctic, and the Peruvian Amazon, she finds that ordinary people sharing their stories does far more to advance understanding and empathy than even the most alarming statistics and studies. As a 2018 National Geographic Explorer, she photographed and recorded audio with ArtCirq, an Inuit Arctic performance collective.
