An invisible killer; air pollution is a hard topic to drive action around. But 19-year old co-founder of Choked Up Destiny Boka Batesa found a way. Launching a hard-hitting air pollution campaign, they made national news, sparking a UK-wide conversation about how inequality affects the air we breathe. And they’re not stopping there – now, they’re pushing for laws to enshrine our right to clean air. Tune in with co-hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst live from The Conduit in London to discover what environmental racism looks like, how you can be a climate campaigner and still shop at Urban Outfitters, and why, even though this is a question of survival, it’s not too late. As Destiny says, “it’s really nice and refreshing to feel like you can do the right thing.”
