This lively online discussion with scientists, researchers and audience interaction, looks at communicating science, the psychology behind our actions, and the politics of Climate Change.
Chaired by Radio 4 journalist Ritula Shah, we’ll be asking why is Climate Change so hard?
“The danger of global warming is as yet unseen, but real enough for us to make changes and sacrifices” Margaret Thatcher told the UN in 1989. Yet, in 2020 the predictions are unfolding with devastating wildfires, severe weather, and melting glaciers. It seems that international targets are missed, systems largely remain the same, and not enough progress is made.
Is this true and why does it happen? We’ll be discussing the evidence and looking at how we can keep focused on the solutions to the biggest issue facing us: Climate Change.
