How to Save the Planet A Friends of the Earth podcast

Episode 5: Climate keeping you up at night?

From fires in Australia to floods in Indonesia, it's no wonder many of us are feeling more than a little on edge about the environment.

This episode Climate Campaigner Muna Suleiman talks to producer Isobel, journalist Emma Beddington and psychotherapist Caroline Hickman about "eco anxiety",  how to deal with stressful feelings, and why feelings of despair might actually be a good thing. For you, and the planet.  

Episode 4: The year that fracking fell

After a long and uncertain campaign, 2019 finally became the year the fracking industry fell. It's been a big win for local campaigning, and the environmental movement as a whole.

But why, and how?

Muna talks to Friends of the Earth's lead fracking campaigner, Jamie, and our web guru Fran about why fracking is bad for the climate, how the win happened (and how it was celebrated!), and why activism of all forms is needed to save the planet.

Episode 3: Is this the UK's first climate election?

A General Election gives us the chance to make our voices heard on the issues that matter most.

And with increased understanding of the climate emergency and ever more frequent strikes will this election turn out to be the UK's first climate election?

This episode Muna speaks to creative lead Louisa and political campaigner Rosemary about election fatigue, how to vote and what we should be asking our local candidates ahead of the 2019 election.

Muna is joined by DJ and radio presenter Erica McKoy as they delve into the world of music  and what the industry is doing to tackle the climate crisis.
