A topic that’s grown increasingly relevant to my work in recent years is the changing climate. ☀️
It’s rapidly become a pressing concern: our time to make a difference to the world by mitigating its effects is running out. ⌛ But that doesn’t mean we can’t make a difference if we act now.
And the UK and Italy will be key players in 2021: we’re the co-presidents of the COP26 summit beginning next week on Monday November 1st. This summit brings together the United Nations to reach an agreement on how we’ll be tackling climate change. 🌍
It’s most likely one of our last chances to prevent many of the worsening disasters we’ve already witnessed in the tragic events of this year – wildfires, flooding, hurricanes and more.
But we still have the opportunity to protect the planet. COP26 will be a major update to the Paris agreement and should see decisive action from many of the world’s major players in climate change. 🤝
It’s a dramatic political event that brings a chance to make a real difference for ourselves and our children – and I can’t wait to see how it plays out.
