How can we expect the leaders of the future to tackle the complex issues we face with an education system trapped in the mindset of the past?
 
In this episode, Alannah speaks with activist and student politician, Zamzam Ibrahim. Zamzam is the former President of the National Union of Students and currently serves as the President of the charity Students Organising for Sustainability, which was created by the NUS in response to the climate and ecological crisis. 

Her campaigns have highlighted that the climate crisis is deeply intertwined with issues of social justice and inequality. And that what is needed, is a fundamental shift in the education system, to give young people the tools and agency they need to fight for a greener, fairer future.
