Outrage + Optimism

Oct 28, 2021

If you haven’t heard, COP26 is about to happen.

This week we embrace the complexity that is a COP (Conference of the Parties), and try to frame what is going to happen in the next 2 weeks so we don’t lose focus on limiting global heating to 1.5C.

We’re joined by Communications Director of COP25 & COP26 Climate Champions, Matthew Phillips. Matthew is inextricably linked with the process of COP26 and shares his wisdom and unique insight into what a successful COP26 looks like.

So if you’re thinking about the logistical nightmares of COP26, what the Heads of State might say, how NDCs are going, or how inequities are being addressed at the COP this year, this conversation is for you.

Stay til the end for a beautiful soundscape of children’s voices from Positive Imaginings.



Christiana + Tom’s book ‘The Future We Choose’ is available now!
