Shifts [Rebroadcast]

We all have decisive moments when the decisions we make can drastically shift the direction of our lives. In some cases, that shift is felt generations later. Taken from our archives, the show includes us talking to some fairly ordinary people who found creative ways to shift the balance of power in favour of the environment. Toby Heaps tells us why he felt the world needed a magazine that focused not on corporate profits, but on corporate social responsibility. Tim DeChristopher recounted the day that he decided a controversial auction of oil and gas leases couldn’t go ahead, and how he stopped it. Finally, Liane Lowe explained how watching a documentary shifted her outlook on the environment. Plus, we take a look back at some of the biggest shifts in environmental resistance throughout history. All that on this week’s archive show courtesy of your pals at Terra Informa.
