Making it count: How can we ensure fairness and inclusion are at the heart of environmental action in 2021?
The impacts of the climate crisis are not equal within and between countries, and they compound pre-existing vulnerabilities. Poor and BAME communities around the world are at the frontline. The 2021 Glasgow climate summit is the opportunity to involve them in the decisions being made about their futures. This expert panel will discuss how COP26 can amplify minority voices and redress inequalities by making sure that inclusivity and justice are embedded into the proceedings.
Speakers: Nikita Mistry, Tasneem Essop and Adelle Thomas.
Chaired by Megan Trethewey
