The climate conversation is changing; a more inclusive, diverse and equitable story around climate is emerging, with race at the centre. This week’s extra special guest Member of Parliament for Tottenham and Shadow Secretary of State for Justice David Lammy explains that the fight for racial justice is critical to saving the planet. He urges us to reframe the climate debate and see it as a humanitarian crisis: “this in the end is not just about saving the planet. It’s about the people on the planet. And the people on the planet bearing the brunt of it are black,” David explains. On this episode of Climate Curious by TEDxLondon tune in with co-hosts Maryam Pasha and Ben Hurst as they discuss why we need more black representation in the climate conversation, interrogate why if you care about identity, race, gender or equality you should also care about climate, and explore how we can all join the dots between racism and climate to create a more equitable world. And don’t miss out on this week’s scandalous Climate Confessions, which includes an hilarious overshare on some very personal habits!
