Watch a recording of a conversation between climate activist Daze Aghaji and writer and podcaster Natasha Lipman as they reflect on their recent experiences of balancing personal wellbeing with supporting their communities.

Natasha shares her own experience of chronic illness with others, while Daze advocates for climate justice, but they have been reflecting on similar questions: where does self-care end and community care begin? And how do you find a balance between the two?
