Episode 6: World Environment Day – Is a local and global green recovery possible?
As the UK and other countries contemplate easing coronavirus-related movement restrictions, important questions remain about how exactly society can recover justly and sustainably. How do we take care of our health, well-being and livelihoods in response to the twin crises of the climate emergency and Covid-19? How do we ensure that the most vulnerable members of our communities do not get punished even more by the inequalities that pre-dated and exacerbated the pandemic? And can local actions in Waterloo actually make a global difference? Our special Festivalcast for World Environment Day explores these questions in a conversation between Shanon Shah, Coordinator of Faith for the Climate, and Harriet Lamb, CEO of Ashden.
