On Water Storytelling - A Conversation with Joana (Jo) Bacallo
Play • 33 min

Join me for today’s conversation where I will be speaking with Jo Bacallo, the founder of SEEDS (Schools for Environment Education, Development and Sustainability). Jo believes in the right for every young person in remote communities to access information about environment education, and learn how to live sustainably. 

From growing up in the Philippines as a student journalist who did not accept the reality of injustice, Jo became a water storyteller to bring the voices of the outsiders, the ones left behind, on stages around the world. She encourages young founders of grassroots organisations to pursue their activities in water and climate education because, even though the work is difficult, it will have a tremendous impact in the future.

Enjoy the conversation!

Show notes:

Jo recommended the book The Examined Life by Stephen Rosz. And somebody she would love to listen to on this show is Pavlo Vezdenetsky, the founder of a nonprofit organisation that protects rivers in his hometown of Khmelnytskyi, Ukraine.

To connect with Jo, you can find her on LinkedIn and Facebook. You can also visit her website and watch one of her most recent video interviews. To find out more about SEEDS, you can connect with them on their Facebook page.
