With increasingly extreme global weather events and a growing awareness of our precariousness on this planet, we need action like never before. Where is environmental activism headed next? Join filmmaker and campaigner Alice Aedy in conversation with three brilliant activists including Mya-Rose Craig (Bird Girl), Venetia La Manna and Daze Aghaji.

MYA-ROSE CRAIG, also known as Birdgirl, is a British-Bangladeshi naturalist, environmentalist and race activist.

The main focus of Daze’s activism is regenerative cultures, intersectionality, environment, youth political engagement and social change funding. Daze has recently become a Trustee at Blagrave Trust and started an Artist Residency at Phytology, the Bethnal Green Nature Reserve.
