5pm - 6pm

Dame Jane Goodall has spent a lifetime working with chimpanzees and working to rescue endangered species. In 2002, she was appointed the UN’s Messenger of Peace. She joins a panel of experts: Sandrine Dixson-Declève, the Co-President of the Club of Rome, Jean-Pascal van Ypersele, the previous Vice-Chair of the IPCC, Runa Khan, the founder of Friendship NGO, Isabella O’Dowd, Senior Climate Change Specialist at WWF, working on net-zero and green-recovery, Abigail Gualinga, a youth leader of the indigenous Sarayaku community in Ecuador and Rob Callender, an activist with Greenpeace and a coordinator with Extinction Rebellion and a group called the Communities Truth Commission. The tragic times of COVID-19 has ignited a discussion about how to create a better world.

The panel will discuss whether this moment in time is a unique chance for hope and action on the climate emergency.
