Panelists, do you think that a sufficient number of people around the world now have either first-hand evidence of the problems climate change will cause or enough of a gut feeling about it to be motivated to push their representatives to act? Or is it still too far down the priority list for many people?
Bill, it does seem increasingly hard to keep focusing on 2 degrees as it appears to slip away
Bill, are there examples of movements that have built quickly in the past that the climate change movement might emulate?
Mary, is the wider world community ready to talk about equity issues around climate change? There appears to be a lot of reluctance to talk about loss and damage, which certainly includes that
I guess one problem is that climate change often feels a bad news story and people like to focus on good news. Obviously clean renewable energy is one part of the good news - are there others that could be brought out to change the focus as we talk about climate change?
@tripley66 What were those key messages?
Winnie, I think you're right about the marches being a way to act, and to feel like there are many more people out there than you'd realised that are also worried.....
Thanks, Joshua - good question!
Bill, how do you get people involved that might care about their kids having worsening allergies because of weather changes, etc - not people traditionally worried about climate change per se?
Will there be one in Dhaka as well, Quamrul?
