Mikaela Loach on fighting the climate crisis through social justice and being a ‘soft Black girl’

The climate crisis is the biggest single issue affecting us all – but for some, the impact will be, and already is, far greater than for others.

This is the principle of climate justice, that sees the causes and consequences of climate change as inextricably linked with social inequality – and that activist Mikaela Loach has made the focus of her work.

Today on Ways to Change the World, Mikaela Loach tells Krishnan Guru-Murthy why we need to reframe our understanding of the climate crisis in order to tackle its root causes, and why only through ‘active hope’ and collective action can we radically transform our world for the better.
