In this episode, I sit down with Coralie Hunt, Amber Casiot, and EJ. All young members of Youth Strike 4 Climate;  from Oxfordshire, Brighton and Surrey respectively.Together we discuss how they got into activism and why. We also debate about young people and their impact on the environmental movement, and the pressure the current environmental situation is having on youth. A pressure that frankly shouldn't exist and shouldn't be forced on the younger generation. If you want to support the show don't forget to like, share or review on whatever platform you're listening on.Sadly, after this post the podcast will be taking a hiatus for a few months. Support the show (https://www.patreon.com/WritingPilgrimage)
