Force of Nature

11-03-2024 • 48 mins

How can we encourage more people to get involved in activism?

Jaiden Corfield is an activist turned social entrepreneur with over a decade of experience in the social impact sector ranging from building radical schools that nurture learning to pioneering bold and disruptive funds that re-invent philanthropy. Jaiden has worked alongside some of the world’s largest organisations and institutions to create and sustain positive change across education, philanthropy and policy.

Ben Hurst (he/him) is an activist, educator, host, presenter, podcaster, model, public speaker and the Head of Facilitation and Training at Beyond Equality (formerly The Good Lad Initiative). He is the co-host of TED x London’s Climate Curious podcast and has an inspiring TEDx Talk on rethinking masculinities called ‘Boys won’t be boys. Boys will be what we teach them to be’. He’s featured in Stylist magazine, Postscript, Positive News and many more.

Imposter syndrome in climate activism is so real and in the second episode of season 3, Confessions of a Climate Activist, Clover sits down with Jaiden Corfield and Ben Hurst to explore what it’s like to feel like an outsider, and addresses the causes behind imposter syndrome in the activist space, from economic privilege and classism, to gender equality and racial justice. Wait til the end to hear a juicy climate confession from both Jaiden and Ben.

“When I feel imposter syndrome kicking in, I'm like ok, this is a sign I need to be in the room.” - Jaiden Corfield

“What prevented me from engaging earlier in climate? I think first of all, I'm black.” - Ben Hurst
