Simon Moore | On the streets at COP26

Simon Moore | On the streets at COP26

Join climate justice activist and science communicator Simon Moore, from Leeds (UK), for a walk through the streets of Glasgow during COP26.

 

Listen to the perspectives of Indigenous leaders, youth strikers, scientists, musicians, and locals, as you experience a taste of the climate activism that occurred during this historic occasion. 

 

You’ll be transported into the heart of two enormous climate marches, hear speeches from Vanessa Nakate, Raki Ap, and Greta Thunberg, and meet a variety of delegates from around the world. 

 

Rou Reynolds explains why his band Enter Shikari felt compelled to play a gig during COP26. Marie Christina Kolo explains why the climate crisis makes gender inequality in Madagascar even worse. Professor Kevin Anderson dissects the flaws in the concept of ‘net zero’. And Dr Sam Mugume Koojo reflects on the progress made by the Ugandan government on carbon credits. Plus hear the welcome from Glaswegian residents as world leaders descended upon their city, to discuss our collective future.
