The Earth requires strong voices in light of minimal progress in international negotiations – personal visions capable of inspiring social change for millions of human beings. The 30 women participating in the closing of Climate Week Miami share stories of struggle, innovation, resilience, sensitivity, and leadership, all aimed at realizing a planet that aspires to have 30% of its areas protected by 2030. Across generations, they unite in the face of a jeopardized destiny that resonates on a universal frequency: the survival of our civilization. This union of forces is embodied in the Miami Global Forum 30x30.

A podcast about the only living planet we know of, our relationship with it and its other species. Presented and co-produced by Nicolás Ibargüen, La No Ficción and Exile Content Studio.
