Opening by reading her ‘Letter to the Earth’, a confessional Caroline Lucas MP chats with Pádraig Ó Tuama about the inspirations that have sustained her decades-long public life in green politics and campaigning.
Caroline Lucas is the UK’s first ever Green party MP, first elected for Brighton Pavilion in 2010 and re-elected three times since then, each time increasing her majority. She has kept issues such as the climate emergency, the ecology crisis, human rights and animal protection at the forefront of the political agenda. She topped the Woman’s Hour Power List in 2020 for her work on the environment.
Pádraig Ó Tuama is a poet and a theologian from Ireland.
