An introduction from the Mcr GND Podcast:
The Mcr GND Podcast was set up to explore all aspects of the fight against climate breakdown with a view to promoting the best of that knowledge into the concept of a Green New Deal. We cover all aspects of this struggle from activism, science, politics, and economics and have been fortunate enough to speak with world-renowned experts in each of these fields, with many more still to come.
From the beginning, we also wanted to make sure that we used our platform to highlight and amplify environmental campaigns in Mcr. Understanding global climate issues is extremely important, but it shouldn’t be of the detriment to connecting with and supporting groups from where you live.
