Alongside Paula Maultasch, the creative Executive Producer of the Inside Ideas podcast, we are here at COP27 in Egypt to bring you more than a few good reasons why you should be cheerful about the future.
It is a journey we are calling #ACopHalfFull as we ask leaders and change makers inside COP27 what makes them optimistic about the future.
The rather inspiring Irina Fedorenko, co-founder, Vlinder Climate, is first up, with an upbeat message on why the future is something we can all get excited about.
This is not to make light of the fragile situation the world is in, or to trivialise the challenges that lie ahead, but if we accept we are at a moment when transformative and systemic change is underway, then let’s start to imagine what a world that has truly transformed might look like.
