This video discussion about the COP-26 was hosted by Mike Sandler, and includes reflections by five people who attended the COP-26: Theresa O’Donohoe, John Sharry, Caroline Whyte and youth delegates Saoirse Exton and Marina Guião.
Topics covered include the dangers of ‘youth tokenism’ and greenwash, the exclusion of many voices, the falsely optimistic tone struck by the ‘trade-show’ style pavilions – and also the power that can come from many different grassroots groups joining together.
