So, is our land harming or HEALING us?

Untelevised: The Podcast

28-06-2022 • 1 hr 41 mins


Last episode, we explored what it means to belong to land - to find safety, to feel settled, to lay down roots and build a life. Building on this foundation, in this episode we are exploring what it means to go beyond survival and begin to find healing.

With climate change at the top of the world's political agenda, we're increasingly becoming aware of the damage and destruction that we are causing to the planet. We've heard the cries for us to stop and heal the earth - but in that process can we also heal ourselves? Are they synonymous? Or does one lead to the other?

We put these questions to Farzana Khan, from Healing Justice, and Nicki Myers from Disabled People Against Cuts.
