EPISODE 05 – Zamzam Ibrahim
As co-Founder and President of Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS), Zamzam has been campaigning to transform the education system so sustainability is integral and inclusive in responding to the climate emergency. We speak to Zamzam about organised student responses to climate justice, how that’s been disrupted in the current Covid situation, and how we might come out of this situation with climate and environmental campaigning at the fore.
Zamzam will be in conversation with Farah Ahmed, Julie’s Bicycle on Wednesday 1st July, 16:30 – 17:15 BST
Zamzam Ibrahim biography:
Zamzam is a co-founder and President of Students Organising for Sustainability (SOS), and the former National President & Vice President of the National Union of Students. She’s led work on tackling societal injustices, leading campaigns from climate justice, tackling racial injustice to abolishing the Prevent Duty. Zamzam has been a leading voice on tackling climate injustice more specifically in the education system, diverting away from a Eurocentric lens in which the climate crisis is currently portrayed in.
To build on the legacy of our podcast The Colour Green – featuring artists and activists of colour speaking about their work and connections between climate justice, race, power, and inequality – some of these #CreativeClimateChat conversations will become short podcasts, supported by Arts Council England.
