Clover Hogan - How to Deal with Eco-Anxiety and Fight to Save Our Planet
Show Notes

I met today's guest, Clover Hogan, at a panel where we both spoke. She was prompted to respond by the moderator, and her response, as a 23 year old, totally blew me away. She is a fighter for what is undeniably the most pressing cause of our time, a reluctant warrior of the generation we've long known will inherit our reckless treatment of the planet.

Clover Hogan is a climate activist, researcher on eco-anxiety and founding CEO of Force of Nature: a youth nonprofit mobilizing mindsets for climate action. Clover Hogan's team at Force of Nature is tackling the climate and mental health crisis by empowering the next generation of leaders. In her decade of activism, she has worked alongside the world’s leading authorities on sustainability, consulted within the boardrooms of Fortune 500 companies and supported students in more than 50 countries to realize their power as changemakers. At just 22, she has taken the stage with corporate giants alongside global changemakers such as Dr. Jane Goodall and Dr. Vandana Shiva and interviewed the 14th Dalai Lama.

Listen as we discuss:

  • How did she become an activist at such a young age?
  • The deep entrenchment of our denial of climate change.
  • Is it too late to solve the climate crisis?
  • Doom and gloom isn't the point. The facts are just gloomy.
  • How we can transition to proper, ethical business and consider the future.
  • Eco-anxiety and embracing the lessons in the heartbreak of our situation.
  • Being uncompromising in building the world we want to see and save.
  • Does Clover find time to have fun?
  • Sharing stories about the Dalai Lama.
  • Clover's biggest secret? Her [honest] inconsistency.
