With edie readers working remotely or on furlough, the #SustyTalk series of video interviews keeps you connected to the inspirational environmental leaders who are continuing to drive sustainability and champion climate action from their own homes.

#SustyTalk is all about keeping edie’s loyal readers connected to sustainability across the world, whilst reminding us all that sustainability and climate action must go on through the current Covid-19 pandemic and beyond. 

With less than four months to go until COP26, edie is using this format – which has previously spotlighted sustainability and energy professionals – to amplify the voices and highlight the work of climate activists, encouraging sustainability professionals to take their learnings on board. 

The latest episode sees edie’s senior reporter Sarah George speaking with Stop Ecocide International’s co-founder and executive director Jojo Mehta. 

Mehta outlines how scientists, members of the public, activists, individuals and lawyers are coming together to help make the destruction or degradation of nature a criminal offence. This movement has been growing and accelerating in recent times. June saw a draft law published, defining the offence – ecocide. Mehta explains what will happen now, after that definition was submitted to the International Criminal Court (ICC).
