RSA Short: George the Poet on Climate Change

Video

Why can’t we overcome our collective inertia? Intellectually we may ‘get it’, but our behaviour doesn’t always reflect that fact. Searching for a more powerful, emotive way into the problem, we commissioned BRIT-nominated George the Poet to write a brand-new piece to awaken us from our toxic slumbers.
