THANK YOU AGAIN, @DazeAghaji you are an absolute joy to talk to and learn from💚Y
And even better recommendations – wow!
We LOVED this answer #Skegness is an iconic place in the UK (if you know, you know)
Then we asked for their #ClimateConfession which was both honest and thoughtful (we love this question, it's a real leveller and here at DTGT we're all about being real).
Which lead us to talking about rest 💤 and we really agree that it's something that should be taken seriously – and that we all have to work at to get right.P
Then we heard about impact and found their stance on it really refreshing and meaningful.
And then chatted about pride and purpose, which for Daze, is all about community 💚W
We started off talking about breakfast, as you do ☕️
Daze is a Youth Climate Justice Activist, Creative Director at @earthrisestudio and Artist in Residence at @PhytologyLondon. We spoke to Daze about the importance of community, working on rest and got some mega book recommendations to add to our reading list.
OK, so it’s been a hot-minute since we last posted ⏰ 🤯 BUT we’ve got some amazing people up our sleeve for our Climate Employee of the Month series starting with December’s trophy holder: The absolute sunshine powerhouse @DazeAgahi 🏆Fzo

World leaders must stop failing us at #COP26. Instead of taking cues from corporate lobbyists and the fossil fuel industry - they need to listen to climate activists from across the world. Meet the people our leaders should be listening to: bit.ly/316tB3Y
