The Ecovybz Podcast

I am on a mission to educate, inspire and mobilise upcoming activists by having interactive conversations on environmental topics with youth from across the world. Drawing from a global network of inspiring youth leaders, climate activist Khadija Stewart brings a Caribbean, positive, upbeat and informal perspective to the environmental podcast scene.

Coming June 11th is the Action for the Ocean Series Inspired by Pendulum and Peace Boat US. Young Climate and Ocean activists from across the world had the opportunity to develop amazing campaigns all geared towards saving the oceans. For this first season you would hear from the organisers of the initiative as well as the youth who developed campaigns ranging from coral protection, to sustainable fashion, shark conservation and so much more. My goal is to spark inspiration and encourage each and everyone of you to learn how you can take action to protect our oceans.

Episode 19: Innovative Marine Mapping in the Caribbean EcoVybz Podcast

In this week's episode, I chat with Dr Kimberly Baldwin, a marine ecologist with specialized skills in geoinformatics, focusing on participatory research and the utility of information technologies to support stakeholder engagement and collaborative approaches to develop more holistic information for environmental planning and management. Presently her research includes the use of drone and information technology platforms to support mapping and modelling of the environment. Dr Kimberly also has extensive practical experience teaching and conducting: field surveys, mapping and monitoring applications; remote sensing, spatial data management, modelling and analysis; participatory mapping, marine spatial planning and stakeholder engagement techniques. Together we discuss the role of information technology and marine spatial planning tools for marine conservation in the Caribbean and the importance of developing a participatory approach to ensure all stakeholders are involved in marine initiatives from idea to execution. We also touch on the importance of drone technology in the region and its use as a tool to empower local communities to engage with the ocean and provide data to the necessary parties.  To learn more about Dr Kimberly and to connect with her check her information below.
