About this interview:


How can we unlock purpose and new mindsets to forge ecological and systemic change?

“A beautiful future is one where everyone is in touch with their personal sense of purpose in their life and they are taking steps in some way to enact that in the world.”

In this episode Amisha talks to Jessica Ferrow, a climate activist, entrepreneur and sustainability strategist. Jessica co-founded climate impact agency ‘Twelve’ supporting purpose-driven businesses to unlock impactful responses to the climate and ecological emergency. Jessica is a mentor and advisory board member of Catalyse Change, a director of the Bristol Green Capital Partnership, co-chair of the Bristol Climate Leaders Group and a member of the mayor’s One City Environment Board, helping her home city Bristol achieve its ambitious Net Zero 2030 carbon targets.

Together, Amisha and Jessica recognise a rising sense of urgency in the world for meaningful responses to the climate and ecological crisis. They explore how inspiring leadership and human connection can shift mindsets and forge purpose driven changes in communities and businesses.

Jessica shares her passion for bringing climate emergency activism into boardrooms. Her heart-based leadership and transformative experiences guide businesses and organisations into unlocking their purpose, leadership and strategic responses to the climate and ecological emergency that serve both, communities and ecologies. She talks about Bristol and the inspiring challenges of it transforming into a carbon neutral city by 2030 considering systemic inequalities, climate justice and our interconnectedness with global communities and nature.

We learn that community initiatives and young people are setting admirable examples of leadership taking agency to navigate the complexities of our time by freely standing in their power and truths to solve the climate crisis. We can all activate our purposeful leadership by spending time with nature. Nature is the teacher that can guide us into epiphanies and mindset shifts whilst providing sanctuaries of solace that can help us find purposeful responses during this great time of upheaval.

“Nature is always our teacher, our saviour, our solace and our sanctuary.” Jessica Ferrow


Jessica Ferrow is a climate activist, entrepreneur and sustainability strategist with a focus on radical climate action. In 2018, dismayed by the UN IPCC report that said we had 12 years to avert climate chaos she co-founded UK-based climate impact agency Twelve, whose mission is to help purpose-driven businesses respond meaningfully to the climate and ecological emergency.

Jessica’s areas of interest are heart-based leadership for systemic change, unlocking personal growth through transformative experiences in nature and modelling beautiful leadership in her life and work.

Jessica is a mentor and advisory board member of Catalyse Change, a social enterprise helping young women into sustainability careers. As well as exploring ways to rewild our hearts and our communities, she undertakes extensive pro-bono work in her home city of Bristol as a director of the Bristol Green Capital Partnership, co-chair of the Bristol Climate Leaders Group and a member of the mayor’s One City Environment Board, helping the city achieve its ambitious net zero 2030 carbon targets.
