Clean and Green: Is a Just Energy Revolution Around the Corner?
How can we realise a world in which global communities have access to clean and sustainable energy for generations?
Alternatives to fossil fuels are out there, and the clock is ticking to halt the most devastating impacts of climate change and biodiversity loss. In the lead-up to the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, COP26, join us in discussion with climate scientists and industry experts as we chart humanity's complex relationship with energy, and what is needed to drive the transition to sustainable energy across the planet.
