Keeping motivated to school strike and talk about lowering carbon footprint

October 19, 2019

In Ep 2 School's Out presenter's Russell, David and George talk about lowering our carbon footprint and issues faced with making these changes. We also examine the tension of adults telling teens not to school strike- that we need to follow our own leaders in the School Strike movement and not listen to a PM who thinks coal is good. 

 

School's out can be contacted at schoolsout3cr@gmail.com

We would like to hear from teens involved in protest and activism, especially if you'd like to be interviewed too. If you have an upcoming event or an issue to discuss then contact us and we can help with radio and podcast coverage,
