Catherine Reda | Becoming an Activist
How do you go from bystander to activist? Catherine Reda did just that, and set up an e-petition to ban the sale of fur in the UK. Just before the deadline, the petition reached the 100,000 signatures it needed to be considered for a debate in parliament. With the debate just around the corner, I talk with Catherine about her experience of setting up and running a campaign.
Ending Animal Testing
Is an end in sight for animal testing? I host a Think Tank with past winners from the Lush Prize to talk science, training, public awareness-raising, lobbying, and the importance of young researchers.
Tech & Reconnecting With Nature
How does our addiction to mobile technology impact the natural world? I host a panel with Reinhardt Smit, Nikki Maksimovic and Danielle Connor as they talk about why the environment needs tech for good.
Investigatory Powers Act
Hear what campaigners for human and digital rights have to say about the government's Investigatory Powers Act also known as the Snooper's Charter, as I host a panel at the Lush Summit.
