EarthRights

Opening up conversations about human rights and environmental issues

EarthRights podcast and platform focuses on the connection between human rights and environmental issues to drive fair and just change.

Our Platform

The EarthRights podcast and platform address the fact that the climate crisis and human rights are fundamentally connected.

We publish audio and written content to highlight these issues, and through the medium of storytelling we aim to get to the human heart of the struggles. Our conversations are open, inclusive and solutions-focused, so that audiences feel empowered to make changes in their everyday lives.

We offer a digestible, thought provoking and informative podcast with advice and suggestions at the end of each episode. We broadcast weekly on Wednesday mornings. 

We interview professionals, campaigners and collaborate with other organisations. By telling the stories of the people who are at the forefront of these issues, we hope to inspire audiences and guide them to take action.

About Us

As an environmental journalist and reporter for Environment Journal and Air Quality News, Pippa’s work has enabled her to meet and interview many key environmentalists. Notably, she has spoken with Helena Molin Valdés, David Wallace-Wells and Gavin Thurston. Her passion for articulating on environmental issues began at the University of Birmingham, where she undertook an extensive research project investigating the language used by politicians when talking about climate change.
After completing her Masters in International Human Rights Law and Environmental Protection last year, Melanie has been working on a freelance basis, writing feature articles for environment publications and developing a legal database for the Human Rights Law Centre in Nottingham. She also helped to organise the Centre’s annual conference and has taken part in various projects with refugees, all of which have made her strongly devoted to human rights matters.

Our Journey

How it all began…

Pippa (left) and Mel (right) met at university in Prague three years ago. They call it ‘the year that changed everything’. They could be found attending activist talks, cultural events and protest marches, but more often than not, talking for hours about their concern for the world around them over their beloved coffee!
Being so inspired by all the people they met and deep conversations they were having, Pippa and Mel felt that more people should be involved in this learning process. They wanted to inspire optimism and encourage people to join the campaign against human rights and environmental abuses.
And that’s how EarthRights started… in summer 2020, Pippa and Mel prepared the podcast and set up a digital platform to open up their conversations, so that everyone can share their ideas, opinions and together invoke a fairer and more just future.
