Mothers Of Invention is a podcast on feminist climate change solutions from (mostly) women around the world.
With ten years to go before we see irreversible changes to our planet, former Irish president Mary Robinson, comedian and writer Maeve Higgins, and series producer Thimali Kodikara dig into the biggest climate issues of our time with love, laughter and memorable storytelling.
Mothers Of Invention gives focus to the stories of black, brown and indigenous women and girls who have been innovating from the front lines of climate change for generations — all over the world! Through their knowledge – in the fields, in the courtroom, at the marches, and in the boardroom – every episode is an education on how to cope, get empowered, and force climate justice for all!
Mary Robinson, the first female President of Ireland and climate justice campaigner is one of the women leading the global climate movement. She is doing everything she can to raise the voices of other determined women, particularly those on the frontlines of climate change in the global south.
