Speaking of Resilience is a podcast series exploring what’s needed for a renewable energy transformation in the Great Lakes State. The podcast is co-hosted by Michigan Climate Action Network and Groundwork Center for Resilient Communities.

Before coronavirus hit, renewable energy was growing rapidly, and Michigan was poised to become a climate leader. While most people and our elected officials are rightly focused on flattening the curve and meeting the immediate needs of the sick, unemployed, and people on the front lines, the urgent timeline to act on the climate crisis has not changed. Massively expanding clean energy infrastructure could also dramatically speed the economic recovery from COVID-19 by creating millions of jobs.

Kate Madigan, Director of Michigan Climate Action Network hosts the podcasts, with frequent co-hosts and guest hosts. This series of interviews with experts explore how we solve the climate crisis while creating economic stimulus and environmental justice in this changing landscape.

If you care about our overheating climate and want to rebuild the economy to be more resilient, just, and sustainable, this is the podcast for you.
