Interview on BBC Points West News

On Thursday 1st December 2016 I did a live interview on BBC Radio Bristol breakfast show about Black2Nature, my Race Equality in Nature Conference and getting ethnic Minority people out into nature.

That morning and evening, BBC1 Points West News also showed an interview with with me about Black2Nature, Camp Avalon and why getting Minority ethnic people outside into nature was important. 

This is my interview on BBC West Local News, Points West with Hamza Khandker who attended both Camps Avalon for young people and Dr Richard Benwell from WWT who spoke at my Race Equality in Nature Conference in June about the citizen's right to access Nature.

Lots of people at school saw my interview, even though I didn't tell anyone about it, which made me realise that the piece reached out to a large audience on this topic, which is great news.
