SPEAKERS POST 1INSTA.jpg

In our third annual event around the theme of COP, Climate Reality Europe–Team UK have the pleasure of working with Shooka Bidarian, environmental TV presenter, producer and award-winning Climate Reality leader, and Mark Maslin, professor of Earth System Science, University College London (UCL) in a unique collaboration to bring you #LoveYourPlanet. The event will explore the outcomes of COP28 and why we have to transition faster than the international consensus. We will hear from businesses, policymakers, activists, and academics. The aim is to inform decision-making processes and inspire our audience.

Now is the time for us all to harness our areas of influence to encourage faster collective action for climate change and #LoveYourPlanet will show us that we can work together to achieve this.

With a specially recorded opening address from Climate Reality founder Al Gore, and a great speaker line-up, we look forward to welcoming you to #LoveYourPlanet on 14 February.
