Fossil Free Now Ep 4: Why Climate Change made me quit my job

Ben Wray

Episode 4 looks at climate activists working within the carbon economy

FOSSIL FREE NOW follows the campaign of Fossil Free Glasgow, a group of volunteers organising for the Glasgow City Council to renounce its investments in the fossil fuel industry.

In this episode, the group discuss the institution of work in our modern societies, and how it is tied in with the climate crisis. Being disillusioned by the prospect of working within a system that is accelerating ecological collapse, we discuss how some of us have taken the leap to quit our jobs and look elsewhere for ways to meaningfully engage with the world we are being thrown into.
