The time for action is now. In our very first episode Professor Jules Pretty and journalist Martha Dixon, talk to some of the world’s leading climate experts about their work to fight climate change and to those who use this research to influence policy and engage the public.
Andri Snaer Magnason (1:35) is a writer and poet and climate change is his passion. He uses his writing to get climate change on the agenda and storytelling to make sense out of complex climate data.
Dr Michelle Taylor (6:12) and Professor Graham Underwood (8:33) from the University of Essex discuss how their research contributes to policies that aim to reduce climate change.
At an international policy level Tanya Steele (11:27), CEO of the UK’s World Wide Fund for Nature’s (WWF), emphasises the importance of science in making decisions and generating new ideas.
Environmentalist and company director Simon Lyster (15:12) brings another dimension – the role that business plays in the drive towards a healthy natural environment.
Finally we talk to young activist Hattie (20:54) who as a WWF Youth Ambassador is passionate about the natural environment and preserving it for future generations.
