Cop27: How can we save humanity from climate catastrophe?


Join our panel, as they discuss this year’s United Nations Climate Change Conference.

After devastating floods in Pakistan, which have left a third of the country under water, and a summer of record-breaking temperatures in the UK and across Europe that have set a dangerous precedent for summers to come, Egypt will this November welcome nations to Sharm el-Sheikh for the 27th annual UN conference on the climate crisis.

Last year, countries recommitted to limit global heating to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels, yet we are still far from being on track to meet this goal – while most of the world’s biggest economies have yet to fulfil the pledges for deeper emissions cuts that they made at Cop26. With international focus on the war in Ukraine, and the cost of living and energy crises, our collective inertia around climate catastrophe risks the “collective suicide” of humanity.

What commitments might be made at Cop27, will they be enough and will they be fulfilled? Join Damian Carrington, the Guardian’s environment editor, as he chairs our panel, which includes Tessa Khan, the founder and director of Uplift, and Ed Miliband MP.

More speakers to be announced.
