COP27 is giving off some good vibes about the future

From inside the negotiating rooms and side events at COP27, and from speaking with the activists and leaders involved, there is a growing belief that we are now moving from the ‘getting it’ stage to the scaling actions stage.

What is really quite hopeful is that COP looks a little different this time around; the voice of young people appears to be more integral to the negotiations, and there is a new focus and understanding that the way we we manage global food systems will go a long way to deciding the fate of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Together with Paula Maultasch, the creative executive producer of the Inside Ideas podcast, on #ACopHalfFull tour of COP27 we are hearing people talk with confidence about the future.

One of those sounding some notes of optimism is Celeste Righi Ricco, co-founder of Change for Planet, and one of the amazing young leaders who is seeing real hope for a “better future” because of a generation “with a lot of ideas and passionate intention” that is now becoming “more and more” involved in key decision making at events like COP27.
