As a storyteller who transitioned into the world of climate tech and finance, Aina Abiodun sees the prevailing narratives around climate solutions as limiting and inadequate to meet the biggest existential challenge humans have faced. Her talk challenges the dominant, Western patriarchal mindset that drives climate innovation and calls for rethinking the systems and myths around our planetary “problems” and solutions.
