It's our final day covering the World Social Forum and we are topping our week off with coverage of climate change and the environment. This episode focuses on a conference titled "The Leap Manifesto: A Conversation." The panel included Ellen Gabriel, Maude Barlow, Naomi Klein, Avi Lewis, Bianca Mugyenyi, and Mike Palacek, who discussed an intersectional approach to climate change.
On today's show:
1. First up is Ellen Gabriel, a Mohawk activist and artist. Ellen welcomed us to Kanehsatake territory and discussed ways in which the Leap can take its lead from Indigenous communities.
2. Next, we spoke with Bianca Mugyenyi, the Leap Manifesto Outreach Lead, about how the Leap will ramp up to inspire citizens across the world to get active!
3. We met with Avi Lewis. During the Q&A session, he invited the audience to critique the Leap movement, so we asked him what he thought of the audience's feedback.
4. Our dynamic and exceptional World Social Forum rabble podcast team share what they learned from the week.
Goodbyes from: Sophia Reuss, Campbell McClintock, Victoria Fenner (executive producer) and David Kattenburg

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing in 2017.
