The Colour Green: Farah Ahmed

Farah Ahmed

The Colour Green is a new podcast from Julie’s Bicycle exploring the links between climate change, race, nature and social justice from the perspectives of people of colour in the UK.

In The Colour Green podcasts, Baroness Lola Young is in conversation with artists and activists of colour who are at the forefront of social innovation – connecting climate justice, race, power and inequality.

In this episode we hear from the producer of Julie’s Bicycle podcasts Green Heritage Futures and The Colour Green, Farah Ahmed, JB’s Events & Networks Coordinator. Farah is interested in the connections between climate and social justice and platforming marginalised narratives in the cultural and environmental space. Farah chose Walthamstow Wetlands to explore for this podcast episode, whilst discussing her experiences of inequality, access to clean air and green space, and how we frame nature and the environmental movement so it’s relevant in different communities.
