CTRL, ALT, DELETE Podcast: #57 Scarlett Curtis

Scarlett Curtis is a writer, ELLE UK contributor and blogger and activist.

We talk about campaigning, collaboration and the influence of having parents who are very active in the charity space – the filmmaker Richard Curtis and script-writer Emma Freud – they play a big role in not-for-profit organisations such as Project Everyone and the Global Goals. Although they are many dark corners of the Intenet, we talk about the positives: how communities you create via Internet and blogging can help save your life.

Scarlett has launched an initiative recently called Un-Idle Collective. They will be hosting meet ups to discuss political and personal issues affecting the world and this week was the first one, we discussed things such as intersectional feminism, the refugee crisis, sustainability, politics, working parents and lots more. It’s about doing something, however small, and about incorporating activism into your daily life. Hope you enjoy this episode.
