Climate Change: Why Should We Care?
Science broadcaster Dr Hannah Fry is joined by a panel of experts including famed conservationist Dr Jane Goodall to explore the big question: how will climate change affect our future, from landscapes and ecosystems to societies and economies?
What will Earth be like for future generations and what changes can we see taking place already? We’re bringing together an international panel of scientists, policy experts and climate activists to kick off the Climate Talks series and discuss why action is needed now if we’re to tackle the incredible challenges presented by climate change.
Delve into the science, hear some uncomfortable facts about the state of our planet and be inspired by efforts from across the globe which are beginning to make a real difference.
