this National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, here are six small things that can help make the world a better place for people with ed's and generally how to resist toxic diet culture 🙂
Emma de Saram is a climate justice activist, History graduate from the University of Exeter and trade union committee member.

In her home town, she started up a repair café alongside her mum. She has spoken and written openly about her eating disorder recovery. She currently works as the elected Vice President for Liberation and Equality at Exeter Students' Guild.
University of Exeter: it’s time to break up with Shell.
The reason Exeter University believes this partnership is positive is not out of naivety nor hope, but because they’ve failed to interrogate Shell’s motives and failed to engage with the facts. Shell has no intention of fundamentally changing its operation model - its logic is that it can continue burning oil and gas because it can offset these emissions through future unproven carbon capture technologies. It’s worth going over the context, and the evidence.
My experience at the EUniverCities Urban Sustainable Development Conference in Innsbruck.
My few days in Innsbruck have given me even more inspiration and hope for Universities as powerful institutions for collaborative change.
