Each episode, Go Simone’s Show Host meets with an academic, activist, artist, entrepreneur, politician or student. She shares her story, roots, passions and hopes for the future. Who is she?

The second episode highlights Sabrina Chakori’s entrepreneurial path as the Founder of the Brisbane Tool Library. She develops further her ideas regarding the importance of transitioning to a sharing economy, and re-creating vibrant and resilient communities.

Go Simone aims to amplify, disseminate and inspire so that more people realise the urgency of our current climate crisis and act on it. Primarily impacted by climate change, women must be in the forefront of this global challenge.”

About Go Simone

Women make up more than half the world’s population, and although they are often disproportionately impacted by climate change, their voices are not always heard due to lack of inclusion and representation at the decision-making level. Go Simone gives them a voice.

An undisguised tribute to two French female change makers, Simone de Beauvoir and Simone Veil, the podcast Go Simone highlights the key role women play in dreaming a better future, and championing climate action and justice in Australia and worldwide. Above all, Go Simone is an invitation to speak up, act and contribute to a greener world.
