With heatwaves and drought becoming increasingly common across the world, it's unquestionable that the climate is changing, and that human activity is behind that change. So why aren't we doing anything? And what should we do?
As a society, we like our clothes cheap and fast. But the impact that's having on the people that make them, and on the environment, is ruinous. What would a fashionable new ism look like?
We talk a lot - rightly - about the importance of preventing climate change in order to avoid environmental catastrophe. Less discussed is nature - the need to protect and preserve it but also its ability to teach us.
Much of the news around climate change is negative - and that's important, because we must understand the gravity of our situation. But we need some inspiration too: that's why initiatives like The Earthshot Prize are so important.
COP26 is into its second week and while some agreements have been reached, many are saying that it's not enough and that we have to do much, much more in order to avoid a global temperature rise of more than 1.5 degrees. So what will it take for global leaders to finally take the dramatic action that is so desperately needed?
There's so much negative conversation around how we can prevent climate change, and COP26 in particular. What if we were more positive and shone a spotlight on what's already being done?
The legendary conservationist Jane Goodall said in a talk recently that humans need to learn to work with our hearts as well as our heads, like animals, when it comes to protecting the planet. We discuss her ideas and how to make them a reality.
