Time for a Change

Winter Weekend 2021, 

The world will have been in Glasgow at COP26 in early November, thrashing out how we can reduce, manage and mitigate the impacts of climate change. We know that this is going to require a major shift in the way we live, work and play. Our expert panel looks at key decisions made at COP26 and discusses the role of creativity, design, storytelling and innovation in conveying the issues and ultimately influencing behavioural change.

​​Owen Sheers is a poet, playwright, author and screenwriter including most recently The Trick - The ClimateGate Affair, Amika George is the founder of the Free Periods campaign and author of Make it Happen - How To Be An Activist, Sophie Howe is the Future Generations Commissioner for Wales ​and Sinead Walsh Climate Director, Department of Foreign Affairs, Ireland. They talk to Hay Festival's Sustainability Director, Andy Fryers.
