Atul Kumar | Alien Places: How Our Perspective is a Vital Part of the Solution to Our Crises [Extended Version]

By Francesca Shirley

If you met an Alien and you had to show them three places in the world, to explain the human race (in terms of the biodiversity and climate emergency for this episode :) where would you take them, what would you show them? Looking at our actions and their consequences from an Alien's point of view offers us a chance to step outside of ourselves and our own lives to see without our lenses and filters of daily life what we are doing to Planet Earth. The three places I would take an Alien are the Great Pacific Garbage Patch, on a kayak and jungle trek through Wilderness in South Africa and  Iguazu Falls and the Itaipu Hydroelectric Dam on the border between Argentina and Paraguay. Where would you take an Alien? Atul's website, Alien Places Podcast, Instagram  And you can follow Namene's work through our Instagram and Website :)
