A Podcast about Green ideas. In the run up to the general election, we're getting to grips with the Green Party of England and Wales' manifesto - 'If not now, when?' - with the people who put it together. A space where we can hear more from the Greens themselves, both Party politicians & outside of party politics, and where we find out more about the fine details of the Party's platform, to understand this growing movement to do what the science requires for the climate. Green Space is produced by Seden Anlar & Julia Lagoutte - in collaboration with the Green Party of England and Wales.
A nurturing & decolonised education is a right we'll guarantee for the youth // Azzees Minott
Ahead of the UK General Election, we talked to Azzees Minott, Green Parliamentary Candidate for Dagenham and Rainham, chair of the Greens of Colour Group, about their new commitment document, current state of education in the UK, and the Home Office and Windrush Scandal. We broke it down how children are getting manufactured in a profit-driven system, how corporatised British universities are and the need to decolonize the curriculum. Also on this episode: what a racist home office says about that government and where politics is going in that country and why allyship matters, and what EVERYONE needs to do so people of color can reclaim the political arena.

Coming Soon: Green Space
Welcome to Green Space!
The Green Party of England and Wales brings so many bold ideas and policy proposals to the mainstream debate ideas like the 4 day week, Universal Basic Income, measuring a happiness index rather than endless growth, and the Green New Deal: a plan to transform our transportation, energy, and economy by spending 100 billion dollars per year for 10-years to reach net zero carbon emissions by 2030.
So, we’re establishing this platform to talk about those Green ideas, to find out more about the fine details of the party’s platform, to understand this growing movement to do what the science requires for the climate, and to go deeper with the people who make up the movement.
