More about Ninon
I believe the role of environmental journalism is to represent the climate crisis as the threat the scientific community is telling us it is. It is our duty to correct tactful misinformation and to see climate change as a corruption issue that is interconnected with an array of other systemic causes such as racism, class structures, gender identities, corporate powers and government inaction.
I focus on those already hit by the ecological crisis and focus on informing about strategies for a resilient, promising future for ourselves, future generations and the diversity of creatures we share our planet with.
I am a big fan of community gardens, food forests and anything else that creates solidarity and unity within communities and the natural world.
When I’m not covering stories, I like to take pictures of ways people reclaim sidewalks and turn them into community spaces. I also like to express myself visually through paintings, collages and embroidery.
