Momentum Vs Perfection Live

If listening to our recent mini-series brought up more questions than answers - brilliant! 

Join Tom Rivett-Carnac, Fiona McRaith, Christiana Figueres and Paul Dickinson for a special online live podcast recording where you can put your questions directly to them. 

With time marching on and anxiety levels rising, how do we maintain an open, collaborative mindset so that we can avoid infighting and exhaustion?

Some in the climate world feel that more radical action is needed to increase momentum now, while others think that only a more pragmatic approach can move us forward. And if both are needed, how do we achieve balance?

You’ve heard what our hosts Tom Rivett-Carnac, Fiona McRaith and our brilliant guests had to say, now it’s your turn.
