Fatima-Zahra Ibrahim

Co-Executive Director of Green New Deal UK

Fatima, 27, has spent nearly a decade as a climate justice campaigner. Many of those years were as an activist with the UK Youth Climate Coalition (UKYCC) mobilising young people around climate change. She has also been a senior campaigner for WeMove.eu, a citizens movement for a progressive EU, and global NGO Avaaz. During her time at Avaaz, she helped lead the organisation’s climate campaigns and ran the biggest public-backed advocacy push for a long term goal in the Paris Agreement. Fatima was also one of the lead organisers of the People’s Climate March that brought more than one million people onto the streets ahead of the 2014 Climate Summit and again in the run-up to COP21. Now, Fatima is the Co-director of the Green New Deal UK

EPISODE 1:

WE ARE REALLY BIG HUGGERS

We moved heaven, Earth and Covid, and we are back! Mary, Maeve & Thimali are doing just fine, but didn’t quite make it through unscathed. In our inaugural episode of the new season, they invite us into their home studios in Dublin and New York to share their tales of lockdown and what they’ve learnt along the way.

 

But with too many emergencies stacked on top of each other and no time to pause on the climate crisis, how do we cope? How do we visualize what happens next?

 

In our first episode of 2020, we unpack what compassion in women’s leadership has shown the world during the crisis; we take a look at the Black Lives Matter uprising and the lessons in accountability and self-care it has addressed; and imagine a new regenerative future that includes us all. 

 

The WHO guided us through the emergency, but what can the climate crisis teach us about pandemics to prevent them from happening in the first place? What can we learn from our natural environments and indigenous wisdom?

 

Daiara Tukano is from a Northern Amazon indigenous community in Brazil. She describes her Covid experience and identifies the opportunities to review global health. And co-executive director of the Green New Deal UK, Fatima-Zahra Ibrahim tells us more about her new project, Build Back Better.
