Outrage + Optimism episodes

Christiana Figueres, Tom Rivett-Carnac and Paul Dickinson take you behind the scenes of the politics, investments and actions that are meeting the climate crisis head on.

We spark mindset shifts, new narratives and urgent action on climate through a variety of partnerships, projects and convenings.

In all our work we explore nuance, complexity and different viewpoints - even if these can be uncomfortable. Working together in radical collaboration is as difficult as it is exhilarating. In the face of approaching climate tipping points and the collapse of the living world as we know it, we cannot afford to continue without it.
