We are entering a critical period. The climate is changing fast and limiting temperature rise to 1.5C is looking increasingly impossible. At the same time, we are losing species faster than at any period in the past centuries. It is easy to despair and lose hope; and yet change is still possible. International agreements are critical to success, but it is local action across the globe that will bring about the most rapid change for climate and nature.
Andy Lester from A Rocha UK will summarise where we are at in terms of the climate/nature crisis and what is being done at a grassroots level to address the most extraordinary challenge of our time.
This event was organised by the South Region committee.
