RSA Spotlights – taking you straight to the heart of the event, highlighting our favourite moments and key talking points.

Humour has long been a powerful tool in the social-change arsenal, but is it powerful enough to help us break through the static on this colossal issue? Is 'laughing-it-off' just about evasion, or is it the key to transforming public perspective at scale, in time?

Working alongside BBC comedian and Sunday Assembly founder Pippa Evans, we have gathered a group of talented comics to inject fresh life and verve into what is often a technocratic debate.

In this excerpt from the event, Marcus Brigstocke helps us think through how to reimagine the climate challenge, loosely based on RSA’s Seven Dimensions of Climate Change framework.
