COP26 is fast approaching. Soon the world leaders will be recommitting to climate action goals. To spread awareness, on November 1st until the 3rd Hawkwood is running it’s flagship Climate Action Lab. It’s a time to #ShakeUpTheSystem and challenge the narrative of loss and separation. We’ve all heard enough of “What are we prepared to give up?”
Now is the time for us to say YES to commitment, YES to action, and YES to nature.
There’s a lot we can do for Climate Action, but the most important thing we can do is educate ourselves on what matters. At the climate action lab we will be doing exactly that. Through hearing the stories of those at the forefront, we learn how we can support climate action. No more giving up. Instead it’s time we build back better.
But while you’re waiting, what can you do to enrich your experience? In the meantime, our community has selected some great reads, recommended by climate leaders and participants from previous action labs, to prepare you for the upcoming event. These great resources will help you to better engage with the talks and each other;
