There is no doubt that climate change is the defining issue of our time, but is 2021 a watershed moment in the race to mitigate the crisis? In the month before COP26, the UN Climate Change Conference in Glasgow, The Times Science Editor Tom Whipple is joined by an expert panel to discuss how we might effectively safeguard our planet’s future. International climate policy specialist Rebecca Peters, Director of Uplift Tessa Khan and sustainability expert Tobias Parker examine key international priorities, explore how we plan for and implement long-term, meaningful change, and consider how politicians and policymakers might effectively strike the balance between a global, coordinated approach to climate action whilst also meeting national objectives on home soil.
