Podcast 9 – Student Activism
We were thrilled to have Beth Doherty, Caillum Hedderman and Saoirse Exton join us to discuss student activism. The three secondary students are on the ISSU (Irish Secondary Student’s Union) committee, as well other environmental groups, including Fridays for Future and Saoirse is also a Climate Ambassador, who won an Outstanding Achievement award from us last year.
Holding a space on this podcast to give a voice to the youth movement, the students discuss many topics, including Fridays For Future, climate justice, intersectionality, lockdown, going outside comfort zones, public awareness and engagement, eco-anxiety, role models, heroes and much more! They, like all the other young people involved in climate action are a great source of hope. We are sure you will find this a very engaging podcast, hearing from this group of brilliant speakers!
