Work is Communicative

Simon Moore recorded 12/01/22

Simon Moore is a climate justice activist and science communicator in Leeds. He dedicates his work (and a fair bit of his spare time) to tackling the climate crisis and the social justice issues that are being exacerbated by it. Simon works half of the week for the University of Leeds, as a Communications and Engagement Officer, helping to support the Yorkshire and Humber Climate Commission, amongst other projects. And the other half of the week he is Admin and Logistics Lead for the community project Climate Action Leeds.

Simon is a podcaster, producing episodes around climate activism for Climactic, and he also likes playing football, going to gigs (CoVid permitting) and, as of recently, playing chess.

About the Podcast

Working Hours
The Story of Work in Leeds in the 2020s
What do you do?
Western Studios, Leeds presents Working Hours: a podcast series surveying the people of Leeds on their thoughts and feelings on the topic of work. I want to talk to my city about work. Why do we do it? Do we like it? What could we do differently? What will we? How does work change and how does it change us?
Leeds, the largest city in the largest county on the UK mainland, is a former imperial textile centre and is now a major UK financial centre. This series will document the city’s experiences through Lockdown, Brexit, creeping technological unemployment, new and continuing resource wars, the ongoing dismantling of the welfare state and our accelerating ecological emergency.
If you are in Leeds or from Leeds then help me to reach my target of interviewing 1000 Loiners over the 2020s. Let me ask you, what do you do?
