Event: Beyond ‘Hopeium’ and ‘Doomism’, Chatham House

As part of London Climate Action Week (LCAW), I chaired a fantastic panel that explored how to maintain focus and attention on reducing emissions even as horrifying climate impacts grow, featuring:

  • Nina Jess, Schwarzman Academy Fellow, Environment and Society Programme, Chatham House
  • Dr Jesse Reynolds, Executive Secretary, Global Commission on Governing Risks from Climate Overshoot
  • Loretta Hieber  Girardet, Chief of the Risk Knowledge, Monitoring and Capacity-Development Branch, UN Office of Disaster Risk Reduction (UNDRR)
  • Dr Aaron Thierry, Researcher, Cardiff University

This is part of the Cohort 2040 project.
