Mothers Of Invention is a podcast on feminist climate change solutions from (mostly) women around the world.


With ten years to go before we see irreversible changes to our planet, former Irish president Mary Robinson, comedian and writer Maeve Higgins, and series producer Thimali Kodikara dig into the biggest climate issues of our time with love, laughter and memorable storytelling.


Mothers Of Invention gives focus to the stories of black, brown and indigenous women and girls who have been innovating from the front lines of climate change for generations — all over the world! Through their knowledge – in the fields, in the courtroom, at the marches, and in the boardroom – every episode is an education on how to cope, get empowered, and force climate justice for all!


This season, while all of us are in lockdown and institutional racism starts fraying at the seams, Mothers of Invention looks more closely at the power of self-care, and how to use our visions of a regenerative future to build back better. As a feminist community, how are we using compassion to win our climate goals efficiently and inclusively? What are the historical lessons we need to learn before we start digging into change? How are our changemakers around the world using nature for wisdom and guidance?


And don’t miss our “minisodes” for unlikely journeys into individual and collective action with Maeve & Thimali!


Join us for our third groundbreaking season of Mothers of Invention!


People-powered initiatives to new government policy to groundbreaking research to hard science. It’s not over till it’s over!
