Episode 2: Mitzi Jonelle Tan
Mitzi Jonelle Tan
Youth activist, founder of the Fridays for Future (FFF) organization in the Philippines: Youth Advocates for Climate Action Philippines (YACAP). We speak with Mitzi about the challenges of living in a country on the front lines of the impacts of climate change, and the emotional experiences that have led her to take up an activist role. We investigate the role of self-care in emotional resiliency, and the importance of breaking the link between unhelpful emotions and action. To conclude, we think about how institutions and activist communities can better engage with each other.
