Episode 23: Climate Emergency for the Planet, for Britain, for Europe
with Clive Lewis1st May 2019
Hosts Zoe Williams and Luke Cooper are joined by Labour MP Clive Lewis, who has been heavily involved in developing the ideas and campaigning initiatives we need to save the planet. We chat Extinction Rebellion and how to connect the goals of a climate revolution to social justice, asking whether there are opportunities as well as sacrifices ahead. We also link these huge global challenges to the upcoming European elections – what better place to promote these policies, you might be forgiven for thinking. And – inevitably, of course – pick Clive’s brains on the Labour line on Brexit and the future of the European Union.
