Show Notes

"I don't think that the true story has even been told as yet..." Dr. Ashley C. John.

The Climate Conscious Podcast has  partnered with the Sargassum Podcast to amplify the voices of those affected by the eruption of the La Soufriere volcano in St. Vincent. The La Soufriere volcano first erupted on April 09, 2021 and remains active.

Hosts: Derval Barzey (The Climate Conscious Podcast), Franziska Elmer and Robby Thigpen (Sargassum Podcast) interviewed Dr. Ashley C. John of Bequia, St Vincent and the Grenadines to share the experience of the volcanic eruptions.  Dr. John has over twenty years experience as a community disaster manager. He shares insights on the devastating ordeal of the eruption, the massive extent of the physical, economic and psychosocial impacts, the need for mental and emotional reassurance and the marathon effort towards recovery.   

We encourage you to use the channels accessible to you to support the recovery efforts for St. Vincent.
