ABOUT ME

Josephine Becker (she/her)

writer, co-host of the YIKES podcast, activist and student currently doing a MSc in Sustainability and Behaviour Change, with a focus on environmental justice, futurism and system thinking. Her interest lies on reflexive epistemology, vertical/radical democracy using feminist-participatory reserach methods.


Over on her Instagram, she writes about intersectional climate justice,
nature connection, grassroots community change, anti-oppression and
general sustainability.

CURRENTLY

Content creating on IG: @Treesnpeace 
A blog dedicated to intersectional climate activism, justice and sustainability. This platform is dedicated as a resource and learning platform around environmental justice and regenerative just futures, that combines individual and system change and how that intersects. 
It documents my own journey in (un)learning, asks the big WHY questions, and reminds us that "it doesn't have to be this way"...

 

Co-host of the YIKES podcast 

A podcast dedicated to climate and social justice, refugee rights, anti-oppression and overall "allyship". Co-hosted with the wonderful Mikaela Loach, and edited by Finlay Mowat. We hope to create a space fore for the messiness of this world, break down big concepts and make them more accessible for us all to act on them.
