Outrage + Optimism

Oct 16, 2020

This is the first of an Outrage + Optimism investigative series on The Future of Transport. Today our cars, planes, trains and ships cause nearly 30% of global carbon pollution. We think the pioneering spirit that got these industries and forms of transport underway more than 120 years ago will have to be reinvigorated to get to a transportation sector that is fit for a low carbon future.


This first episode tackles The Future of Flight. COVID-19 has dealt the airline industry a devastating blow. Airline revenues have been decimated, passenger numbers are down by 70% and hundreds of thousands of people have already (or are at risk of) losing their jobs.


Can this moment of challenge be a springboard toward a sustainable future for airlines? Are there sustainable solutions ready now? And what does the future hold? Tom Rivett-Carnac and co-hosts Christiana Figueres and Paul Dickinson are on a mission to find out what the new aviation pioneers have in store to accelerate the sustainability of airlines and propel us into The Future of Flight. 


Read Tom’s blog to find out more from behind the scenes.
