We came to COP27 with a sense of urgency, as we know from science that we are already running out of time. Technological fixes are certainly not enough - we need deep systemic change within every sector. Recently the pandemic showed us that it is possible to respond rapidly to a worldwide crisis. So, can we use this ability to fight the climate crisis?
In the final episode of our COP27-special, the panellists shed light on what was discussed at COP27 in Egypt, and more importantly, they discuss where we go from here. The panel consists of Matilde Angeltveit, Norwegian Youth Delegate to the UNFCCC, Hans Bruyninckx, Executive Director at the European Environment Agency, Markku Ollikainen, Professor Emeritus and Chair of the Finnish Climate Panel, and Espen Barth Eide, Norway's Minister of Climate and Environment, and is moderated by André Jamholt, Senior Advisor at the Nordic Council of Ministers.
