Episode notes

Welcome back to Good Influence! This is the podcast where each week we'll meet a guest who’ll help us pay attention to something we should know about, but maybe don’t.    This week, we're talking about climate justice: the role of social media in connecting and communicating our causes and why it's important to look beyond our individual actions on the various roles that we can all play in activist communities.   Mikaela Loach is a climate justice activist, a medical student and podcaster. She is currently part of a litigation campaign called Paid to Pollute, which is taking the UK government to court over the tax breaks given to big polluting oil and gas companies in the North Sea.   If you want to learn more, here's where to find Mikaela and her recommendations:  Instagram: @mikaelaloach Twitter: @mikaelaloach Paid to Pollute website   Something to read: What White People Can Do Next: From Allyship to Coalition - Emma Dabiri Something to watch: Shado Mag Panel - What is Environmental Racism Something to listen to: Drilled Podcast / The Yikes Podcast Also mentioned: @thenapministry @climateincolour The Pandemic is a Portal - Arundhati Roy   Get involved and join in the conversation: Follow @gemmastyles @goodinfluencegs and send in your messages and questions to [email protected]
