Daze Aghjai: The Climate Crisis and Running For Office

My guest this week is the tour de force that is Daze Aghaji. Back in 2019, Daze, a History and Politics student at Goldsmith University, hit the headlines for being probably the youngest candidate in the UK to stand as a Member of the European Parliament at the 2019 European Elections, something she was spurred to do with the guiding hands of Extinction Rebellion’s Roger Hallam.

 

Join us as we have a joyful discussion about rising through the Extinction Rebellion ranks, the power of youth movements and what it's like to be a Black activist in an environmental movement that’s historically be seen as anything but diverse.

Catch up with Daze via Twitter and Instagram.

Let us know what you thought of the episode plus any feedback, guest suggestions or if you want a chat! Find us on Instagram! 

 

Until next time!
