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.
