BCMA Climate Action Podcast Series EP02: Value Nature – Chantal & Lauren

October 2021

How does culture connect to climate action? How do we value nature? What are museums roles’ in preserving and advocating for natural, intangible and tangible heritage? How can museums center Indigenous knowledge in climate action and disrupt legacies of settler colonialism in climate action? 

In this second episode of our #CALM series, we interview Lauren Ball and Chantal MacDonald who together created the Bateman Foundation’s Value Nature Podcast. Tune into this insightful conversation in which they discuss the importance of experiential learning, hope, reconciliation, the value of nature, and many other intersecting topics.
