Week 1 - Introduction to the 'Climate &' series
"The last couple of weeks have been a noisy time, with everyone sharing their perspectives on what's been happening inside the (rather exclusionary) walls of the COP26 summit, on the streets surrounding it and globally.
"For Untelevised, social change is about uncovering the root causes of injustice and discovering alternatives. So, rather than focusing on the event of COP itself, we see this as an opportunity to explore the wider themes around climate justice. And we've found voices at the grassroots that we can learn, discuss and share radical alternatives with. The 'Climate &' series is the result of these conversations."
Guests: Snippets from conversations with Asad Rehman (War on Want), PermaQueer, Anne Rammi (Be the Earth Foundation) and Ola Tom Lakere.

Week 2 - Climate & capitalism (Wed 24th Nov)
"Capitalism relies on the exploitation of the planet's resources and people for continuous financial growth. A changing climate is, arguably, an inevitable result of this relentless pursuit. Therefore, although we might consider climate change an environmental issue, the fight for climate justice must be a sociopolitical one that interrogates all of the structures of our society.
"So, in this episode, we’re doing just that! By exploring whether we can achieve climate justice without completely changing the way that we live, consume and trade.
"To do this, we’re speaking with two people who are fighting for change from opposite sides of the fence - both inside and outside of our corporate world."
Guests: Ruth Andrade (LUSH) and Asad Rehman (War on Want)
