Recover. Reclaim. Reoccupy. How do we make land for living, not for profit?
In the second episode of Planet B: Everything Must Change, Harpreet Kaur Paul finds out how the way we’re using land is both accelerating the climate crisis and violating the rights of local communities.
Expert insights come from Alex Wijeratna, campaign director at Mighty Earth, researcher and activist Hamza Hamouchene, Kirtana Chandrasekaran from Friends of the Earth, and Green New Deal campaigner Dusan Pajovic.
Look out for two extended interview episodes this week featuring scholar and activist Noam Chomsky and Julian Brave NoiseCat, director of Green New Deal Strategy at Data for Progress.
