Cut to the Chase with Emma and Kamilah: people-centered environmentalism and where athletes fit


Cut to the Chase with Emma and Kamilah is a monthly series on the Social Sport Podcast. Each month, Emma and co-host, Kamilah Journét, bring you a no-filter conversation at the intersection of endurance sports and social change. In other words, we cut to the chase.

In this episode, we focus on people-centered environmentalism. We ask, what does “people-centered environmentalism” mean to us, and how can athletes better serve not only this planet, but the many people who call it home.
