Podcast – Youth activism

Christchurch City Libraries blog hosts a series of regular podcasts from New Zealand's only specialist human rights radio show Speak up - Kōrerotia. This show is created by Sally Carlton.

What enables and what challenges young people to 'get involved' in working towards positive change? We hear from three young activists - Allie Zohoori-Dossa and Trixie-Mārie Bull (involved in Race Unity work) and Lucy Gray (Christchurch Coordinator for School Strike 4 Climate) - as well as Lincoln University lecturer Sylvia Nissen, whose research focuses on youth activism. Prepare to be inspired!

Part I: What do you understand by 'activism' / 'advocacy' etc?
Part II: What factors enable young people to get involved?
Part III: What factors make it difficult, and how do you respond to these challenges?
Part IV: What would you like to see happen in the future?
