Jo Dodds is becoming a widely-known figure in the climate change community. From being an active member of the community, to running for council as an independent, Jo had the best interests of her community at heart. But her work on climate change, her activism, her willingness to speak truth to power at this time of active climate denial in Australian politics, that came later. We learn what activated Jo, what drives her, and how she maintains her relentless pace. She's gone onto deliver keynotes and speeches, travelling with Bill McKibben, founder of 350.org, on a recent tour of Australia. It was a real pleasure to have Jo on Climactic, and we can't wait to have her back.
