We can solve our climate emergency, but we must act now.
Christiana Figueres was Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change from 2010-2016, and the public face of the most pivotal climate agreement in history, the Paris Climate Agreement of 2015.
Tom Rivett-Carnac was Christiana’s political strategist at the UN. Together, they are the co-founders of Global Optimism, an organisation focused on bringing about environmental and social change, and co-authors of a new book, The Future We Choose - a passionate call to arms, and reminder to all those who feel powerless to stop the climate emergency that there are practical things we can do today to make a difference.
At the RSA, Christiana and Tom will outline two scenarios for our future: how life on Earth will be by 2050 if we fail to meet the Paris Agreement climate targets; or how it will look and feel to live in a carbon neutral, regenerative world.
This is the final hour: it can be our finest hour. It’s up to us, which future we choose.
