    2.4 | Youth for Climate, Young Activists

    2.4 | Youth for Climate, Young Activists

    In this episode, I sit down with Coralie Hunt, Amber Casiot, and EJ. All young members of Youth Strike 4 Climate;  from Oxfordshire, Brighton and Surrey respectively.

    Together we discuss how they got into activism and why. We also debate about young people and their impact on the environmental movement, and the pressure the current environmental situation is having on youth. A pressure that frankly shouldn't exist and shouldn't be forced on the younger generation.

    2.3| The Self Replicating Nature of Climate Change, Discussion with Amy Stapleton

    In this episode, I sit down with Amy Stapleton, a member of Bristol Youth Strike for Climate, and a young 18-year-old Activist.

    I sit down with her and we discuss how she got into activism and why. We also debate about the human effect on climate change and whether Anthropogenic Climate Change has added a self-replicating nature to Climate Change itself, or if it's always been that way.
