Planet Assembly 9 – Call To Action with Tony Juniper and Emily Shuckburgh

Results of the Thought Laboratory

Hay Festival 2023, 

Come along to hear Tony Juniper and Emily Shuckburgh discuss the results from the week of Planet Assembly public workshops led by sustainability entrepreneur Andy Middleton, Chief Exploration Officer at the TYF Group. At this concluding event, we’ll launch the urgent call to action generated from these intense brain-storming discussions.

At the workshops over the first nine days of the Festival, people from all walks of life will contribute to inclusive discussions with scientists, commentators and experts. We’ll share ideas to create new momentum to ensure planetary conditions in which all species can thrive. Each day we’ll tackle an area of our lives where there must and can be urgent change, from biodiversity and mobility to energy and food, water and cities to health and fashion.

The aim is to design and define the new tipping points we confront and to create new public pressure on policy makers and businesses to effect rapid change. Tony Juniper is Chair of Natural England and Emily Shuckburgh is Director of Cambridge Zero; together they have authored Climate Change with His Majesty, King Charles.

This event is part of our Hay Festival Planet Assembly, a daily, inclusive conversation over ten days involving lay people, scientists, commentators and experts. We want to empower everyone to be accelerators and multipliers for the dramatic policy transformations that are needed immediately to tackle the acute climate and biodiversity emergencies.
