According to Radio 2SER-FM “the climate crisis slows down for no one”.
In this podcast report for their ‘Razor’s Edge’ program, Julia Carr-Catzel examines how “populations worldwide are forced to adapt to the consequences of warmer temperatures in their community. In our own backyard, residents of Sydney’s Western suburbs are encountering soaring temperatures. Those living in poorly designed public housing are most vulnerable to the heat, forced to find refuge in air-conditioned local community centres.”
Tune in here to Julia Carr-Catzel of Radio 2SER-FM’s examination of the connections between social justice and climate change – and how close to home it will really be.
Julia’s podcast features these speakers from the Rethinking the Urban Forest conference initiated by Addison Road Community Centre Organisation:
