Climate Crisis - Climate Solutions

Climate Crisis - Climate Solutions

Unlike the collapse of late Bronze age societies, the climate crisis we face in the 21st century originates from human activity. Hundreds of millions of people are likely to become climate migrants, forced from their homelands by famines, droughts, and other ecological catastrophes. How can we make sense of the disaster of climate change? And what can we do to mitigate its worst effects? Is there hope if we act now?

In a special live event held in partnership with The Conduit, we welcomed Sir David King, the former Chief Scientific Advisor to the UK Government and the Chairman of the Centre for Climate Repair at the University of Cambridge; Sian Sutherland, the co-founder of A Plastic Planet, a global campaign aimed at reducing plastic pollution; and Ari Helgason, a climate technology investor who is passionate about finding and funding innovative solutions to the climate crisis. Their host was Pictet’s Christoph Courth.  They discuss how climate change impacts ecosystems and the species that rely on them and explore some of the innovative and ground-breaking solutions that are being developed to mitigate the effects of climate change and restore damaged ecosystems.
