Every Solution Starts With A Conversation

We’ve Partnered with the Science Museum for their ‘Climate Talks’ Campaign

As we find ourselves in yet another national lockdown, the majority of us are itching for the world to go back to normal.

But what does ‘normality’ really entail? When it comes to the state of the Earth, the pre-pandemic normality we so sorely miss is one tainted by dark, uncomfortable truths surrounding the climate crisis.

Action is needed and, as ever, every solution starts with a conversation. 

In order to spark this conversation, the Science Museum Group is starting a ‘Climate Talks’ campaign – a series of Free Online Events, made up of panel discussions and Q&As, each delving into the problems caused by climate change.

These talks will connect you with a host of exciting speakers, from astronauts and physicists to musicians and journalists.  Dr. Hannah Fry, Brian Eno, Jon Snow, Dr. Jane Goodall and Tim Peake will feature, along with many other inspiring leaders, experts, activists and campaigners.

We are thrilled to have partnered with the Science Museum, as they tackle climate-related problems facing our communities and work towards shaping a brighter, more sustainable and eco-friendly future.

The Science Museum Group is kick-starting the Climate Talks series today at 18:30, with a talk titled ‘Climate Change: Why Should We Care?’

Dr Hannah Fry, Dr. Jane Goodall, Kira Peter-Hansen, Dr. Tasmin Edwards and Wanjuhi Njoroge are exploring what Earth will be like for future generations and discussing why action is needed now, if we’re to tackle the incredible challenges presented by climate change.

If you didn’t manage to get tickets for today’s talk, here’s a rundown of what’s to come in 2021:
