Climate Change and Disability

Climate change is quickly becoming one of the most urgent issue of the 21st century. And people with disabilities all around the world, who make up 15% of the earth's population (around one (1) billion people) are being disproportionately affected. Worse yet, they are not being included in the decision-making process nor the disaster planning proceedings. The reason Ming Canaday started this company and, more specifically, this podcast series is to show the impact climate change is having on individuals with disabilities.

Ming's podcast helps show the world how one of the most marginalized groups on the globe, people with disabilities, are also key players who care about human rights, our environment and will act in protecting human rights and saving our planet in whatever way we can.
