Rishi Sunak: The Green PM?

Rishi Sunak: The Green PM?

Olivia Marshall & Zanny Bexley

November 13, 2022

After only 44 days in office, Liz Truss resigned as Prime Minister of the UK following multiple failures and controversies. Her successor, Rishi Sunak, seems to have a more sympathetic approach to environmental issues, but what will his premiership mean for climate justice in the UK?

Zanny Bexley

October 16, 2022

This is undoubtedly a good thing as both an open dialogue and compassionate outlook are essential for addressing the growing mental health crisis among young people. However, it seems that despite this growing conversation there is still a belief that self-care is somehow selfish and a waste of time. In this short blog I want to talk about why this idea is a myth and that actually, as young activists, self-care is one of the biggest acts of defiance that you can take part in.

Rail Strikes and the Climate

Zanny Bexley

September 18, 2022

This summer saw a wave of rail strikes throughout the UK. As unions have been disputing with both the government and train companies over issues such as pay and job losses, wider flaws with the UK’s railway system have been highlighted. A good rail system is crucial to meeting Britain's emissions targets yet the nation's railways, and the workers who operate them, have been neglected for decades.
