An ecoWURD special live broadcast on eco-journalism around water quality and water safety … plus, more on Indigenous justice, trash and healing herbs from the environment
In recognition of Indigenous People’s Day, WURD Radio hosted its second day-long ecoWURD Environmental Justice Summit. This event presented an ambitious mix of LIVE broadcast panels on both its LIVE radio and digital platforms. It was the culmination of extensive journalism from WURD’s ecoWURD.com project which explores the environment at the intersection of race, class, health and income in Philadelphia and beyond.
One panel kicks off with members of the From the Source Reporting Collaborative, an ecoWURD partner, hosted by Sincerely Syreeta – Host of Save Space on WURD – included WURD President & CEO Sara Lomax-Reese, Joseph Lictterman of the Lenfest Institute, Meg McGuire of Delaware Currents, Will Thompson of National Geographic of Diving with a Purpose. Later on she talks with National Geographic’s Kirsten Elstner on their ambitious Indigenous photo project. WURD’s Dr. Paul then comes on about healing through elements of the environment. There’s more conversation about Philly’s trash problem with The Big Clean Up’s Charles Lloyd and Sing Risico.
