Liberating Sustainability is an intersectional take on the climate emergency. In each episode, field-leaders from student liberation movements and academia deconstruct the exclusivity of sustainability activism and education.
Do stereotypes of queer consumerism impact participation in sustainability movements? How does colonialism inform the lives of queer people and the environment? And what might ‘gay penguins’ reveal about the diversity of human experience? Exploring these questions are Dr. Joshua Russell, Associate Professor in Animal Behaviour, Ecology, and Conservation at Canisius College, and Ria Patel, from London Young Greens and LGBTQIA+ Greens.
