S2 Episode 13
In Conversation with Dr Anika Molesworth
Scientist, farmer and storyteller Doctor Anika Molesworth joins us for a conversation about her courageous and optimistic vision for the future of agriculture and the motivation behind writing her new book, “Our Sunburnt Country”.
Anika is a founding director of Farmers for Climate Action, a movement that puts farmers at the centre of climate solutions. She is a passionate advocate for sustainable farming, environmental conservation and climate change action.
Hailing from her family’s sheep station near Broken Hill in far western NSW, it was the impact of the decade-long Millennium drought on their farm that spurred her interest in climate change.
The crippling drought filled Anika with determination to speak out about the changes she was witnessing on the land and in her community – this has led to her becoming a prominent rural spokesperson both in Australia and around the world.
