Environmental Conflict: Cause and Effect — What happens when conflict arises from depleting natural resources Thando Lukuko (Mansa advisory | Director) Rev. Oscar Siwali (SADRA | Director) The show will look at the impacts of climate change policy decisions for frontline communities across Southern Africa. We will explore what climate science predicts for the region and what it means for the populations living in those areas. Specifically, the show focuses on the intersectionality between depleting natural resources (water, food insecurity etc.), livelihoods and the conflicts which may arise as a result. We will provide suggestions on how to mediate those conflicts and a means to get support should the need arise.

They don't really care about us: Climate Justice now! — Young climate justice activists want schools to teach about climate change Boitumelo Masipa (Section27) Raeesah Noor Mahomed (Parktown Girls) Awande Duma (SA YCCC ) Liyema Saliwa (Equal Education | Equaliser) In this episode, we explore the intersection between the right to basic education and climate. Speaking with three young climate justice activists, we hear about how the school curriculum doesn't pay enough attention to issues around climate change or how climate change can be understood in the context of other topics and subjects. Young climate justice activists are ultimately frustrated that they seem to care about climate justice more than those in charge of climate and environmental affairs. Tune in to hear what the message these brilliant young activists have for governments and leaders.

No To Austerity, We Need a Just Recovery — To recover from COVID-19 activists are calling for a just recovery Alex Lenferna (350Africa.org) Sonia Phalatse (Institute for Economic Justice) Carilee Osborne (Institute for Economic Justice) In this episode Sonia Phalatse and Carilee Osborne from the Institute for Economic Justice talks to Climate Justice Coalition secretary Alex Lenferna about the need for a just recovery to COVID-19. We explore why austerity will cause more pain for South Africa, and why we need to invest instead in building a more socially and ecologically just future. Sonia and Carilee discuss a recent report they co-authored about what a just recovery for South Africa could look like. We discuss interesting questions like how does a purple feminist economy compliment an ecologically and socially just green economy. We also discuss why Tito Mboweni's special budget will lead to devastating austerity. We show why the best path forward for South Africa is to instead invest in a socially and ecologically just recovery. Find out more about what a just recovery is and how you can support the call here.
