Tami Pein speaks with Zarina Ahmad and Ester Eriksson about what it means to be an Eco Feminist. They discuss how an Intersectional approach to environmentalism can elevate those with marginalised race and gender identities in order to promote climate justice.
Zarina has over 10 years of experience working as a Climate Change and Environment Officer at the Council for Ethnic Minority Voluntary Organisation, Scotland. Ester is part of the Edinburgh Napier University Feminist Society who have been proactive in organising discussions on Eco Feminism from theory to practice.
In this latest episode of the Climate Fringe podcast we discuss the issues of keeping going, nurturing resilience and wellbeing and somehow remaining effective people in a climate crisis. Tami, Kat and Manish invite Eva Schonfeld, a climate activist, process designer and facilitator, who has been involved in activism for two decades. She coordinated Transition Support Scotland, the Fife Diet and ran conferences for the Scottish Greens. Eva is a co-founder of Starter Culture, Heartpolitics and Grassroots to Global, co-convened the Conflict Transformation summit for Transition Network and supports sociocratic system development, decision-making and facilitation in many contexts. She is also a co author of Politics, Trauma and Empathy - which she recommends we should read 'even though it's very long :)
