reflecting on the past, engaging in the present and dreaming of better days to come
Welcome to the sixth episode of Doorways to Sustainable Schools - a podcast aimed to support London schools to engage in London Climate Action Week 14th-22nd November 2020.
In this episode Martin talks to the remarkable Judy Ling Wong CBE, OBE. Judy is an artist, poet, dancer, environmental activist and a founder of the Black Environment Network (BEN - http://www.ben-network.org.uk/). Martin and Judy first met in the late 90's and Martin has since worked for and with Judy on projects such as Sowing the Seeds and London National Park City.
In this episode, Martin and Judy discuss her journey from Hong Kong to becoming one of the most respected figures in the environmental movement - not just in the UK, but across the world. Judy also shares her perspectives on the Black Lives Matter movement and its implications for climate action.
