Description

After last week’s lesson from Sir David Attenborough, Lucy and Tom continue their mission to deliver more impact in nature and climate reporting. In this episode they catch up with the planet’s most famous climate diplomat, ‘big hitter’, Christiana Figueres. In 2010 Christiana seemed to rescue climate negotiations from the diplomatic trash-can following disastrous global talks, against all the odds marshalling the world towards the global Paris Treaty. Who better to catch up with as we try to imagine a post pandemic future? And who better to advise us on the right stories to tell to help us get there? From lockdown in her native Costa Rica, Christiana gives us a workout in optimism, weans us off doom laden narratives, and explains how we might set the course of direction to a better future. If you thought you were doomed to spend the next two decades telling stories of constant destruction and untold human misery, this could be the point you set yourself free.
