Theresa  Leisgang, Raphael  Thelen - Feeling the Pulse of Our Planet


An evocative travel report by two journalists visiting the places where the climate change is shockingly obvious

To escape the painful helplessness we all feel these days, to think radically and find a way out of the climate crisis – in order to do this, Theresa Leisgang and Raphael Thelen set off on a journey to each one of the planet's climate zones, from South Africa to the Arctic Circle. After 3,000 kilometres, the crisis became personal. They were forced to return home, and to face up to what they could no longer deny: not only is our climate collapsing, but an entire cascade of catastrophes is threatening our future – pandemics, forest fires, heatwaves, extreme weather and starvation – and that they are themselves part of the patriarchal system causing these crises.

Theresa and Raphael began a radical process of self-interrogation, met ecofeminist artists, thinkers and activists, and came to understand that being honest with ourselves, and truly embodying resistance and a fresh start, are not merely the only chance we have to stop the destruction of our planet – it's also wonderfully liberating.
