Climate Queens Podcast with Special Guests

‘We really need to kick the carbon habit and stop making our energy from burning things. Climate change is also really important. You can wreck one rainforest then move, drain one area of resources and move onto another, but climate change is global.’

Katie & Clodagh are delighted to announce their special guests Mariam Sawadogo (Front Line Defenders) and Clodagh Daly (Climate Case Ireland). Join the Climate Queens alongside the Front Line Defenders protection co-ordinator Mariam Sawadogo and Clodagh Daly as they delve into a rich discussion about the importance of law in relation to our climate crisis, the link between human right violations and climate breakdown and the biggest barriers facing climate action in Sierra Leone and Ireland today.
