Studio B: Unscripted

Neocolonialism and the Green New Deal – Barber and Rehman

Activist Asad Rehman and sustainability writer Aja Barber on the Green New Deal and next steps for the climate movement.

Executive director of the anti-poverty charity War on Want, Asad Rehman has spent more than 25 years as a climate and social justice activist working with movements and front-line communities across the globe.

Sustainability writer Aja Barber has made it her mission to call out big brands on their environmental and workers’ rights records.

In part two of Studio B: Unscripted, Aja and Asad talk about what at times alienated them from the climate movement, whether the individual can really make a difference to climate change and if the Green New Deal could actually reinforce inequality rather than alleviate it.
