We Walk The Earth | Reads | Episode 25 - Angela del Sol Guest Bio
Angela del Sol is what can only be described as a true visionary. An artist, innovator, environmentalist and early adopter of blockchain, she is on a self-driven mission to build a more regenerative and inclusive world.
Not content with simply standing on the sidelines, watching as the world around her spirals out of control, Angela is using her creativity, innovation, and knowledge of technology to make a difference in the fight against climate change. At the heart of her work is a deep love for nature and people. In a recent podcast episode with We Walk The Earth, Angela explained how if we want to effect real change in the world, it needs to start with the energy of the heart. This belief drives everything she does — from the creation of tangible and impactful climate campaigns, to the establishment of organisations reframing the way we see and engage with the natural world.

SISU, in particular, is a testament to Angela's passion and determination. Born during a tree-planting mission with some good friends from Jaguar Siembra in the Sierra Nevada mountains, SISU is a platform that uses technology to fund climate action and bring collective social cohesion to areas that lack the support outside of their location. The name stems from a Finnish concept that celebrates inner courage and resilience and perfectly encapsulates Angela's approach to her work.

Alongside SISU, Angela is also the founder of Ancient Future Labs, an artist incubator and event series that explores the intersection of technology, art, and environmental impact. Through events like the women-led gathering at COP27 in Egypt held at the Museum of Art in Sharm El Sheik, Angela is creating spaces where young climate leaders and indigenous pioneers can connect, share ideas, and find inspiration.

At the heart of everything Angela does is a deep commitment to celebrating, uplifting, and inspiring others. She believes that fighting, judging, and crying are unproductive, and that we can make the most progress by embracing change and evolution, not fighting it. She describes society as being boxed into conforming to social norms and linear pathways in life. By breaking free from this linear thinking, Angela is helping to pave the way for a more inclusive and regenerative world.
