Children from Bristol’s inner city have established a climate change podcast in which they share their opinions, feelings, visions, and dreams. The Freedom Kids Podcast is a show developed by Easton’s Felix Road Adventure Playground’s kids aged five to thirteen. The Eastside Community Trust produced each episode, which focuses on a different topic such as air quality and food. In a five-minute presentation, children shared their concerns about burning fossil fuels, the effects of people pouring plastic into bodies of water, and why some of them were vegetarians. Araceli Cabrera Caceres, an experienced playwright and artist, is the creator of the podcast, which has just finished recording its second season, which is on climate change.

It is part of Eastside Community Trust’s Community Climate Action initiative and is funded by the National Lottery’s Climate Action Fund. The lottery fund is a £100 million fund that will be distributed over ten years to help communities across the United Kingdom tackle climate change. The manager of Felix Road Adventure Playground said: “We’ve been going for about two years I think. Each episode gets between 100 and 150 listeners. “They will go on to talk about all the things that you know matter to them. We think it’s a great example of children’s voice and influence,” he added.
