The Colour Green: Judy Ling Wong
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 meet Judy Ling Wong OBE CBE, painter, poet and environmentalist who is best known as the Founder and Honorary President of Black Environment Network (BEN). Judy is a major voice on policy towards social inclusion, contributing through key national committees and campaigns and encouraging multi-cultural participation in the built and natural environment. Judy chose Myatts Field Park in South London for her walk, discussing a broad range of topics starting with displacement, forced migration, wellbeing, how food and art connects us to culture and how we might start to revive green spaces, particularly in deprived areas.
Thank you to Judy and Lola for their time and generosity.
