In this podcast, Sean Russell speaks with Dr. Sailesh Rao about Dr. Sailesh Rao’s Vegan Origin Story, their work on climate change, Asia and the global south, and steps to support community initiatives.
Dr. Sailesh Rao is the Founder and Executive Director of Climate Healers, a non-profit dedicated to healing the Earth’s climate. He is a systems engineer, Human, Earth and Animal Liberation (HEAL) activist, husband, dad and since 2010, a star-struck grandfather. He has promised his granddaughter, Kimaya, that the world will be largely Vegan before she turns 16 in 2026, so that people will stop eating her relatives, the animals. He has faith that humanity will transform to keep his pinky promise to Kimaya, not just for ethical reasons, but also out of sheer ecological necessity. He has created a Climate Bathtub model to help humanity understand the solution space for reversing climate change and enabling a thriving planet.
