We have reached a tipping point where most of the world now accepts urgent action is needed to avoid a catastrophe. Convincing governments, businesses and populations has been a long road and the work continues.
We’re dedicating our next Campfire to four leading figures who have walked that road from the very beginning: Dan Morrell and his esteemed guests: Craig Sams, James Cameron and Jessica Rasmussen.
So please join the Campfire Climate Crisis Special on 27th May 5pm BST to hear the insights of our guests on the current state of climate change and action needed for the future.

James has acted as an advocate in legal proceedings and international meetings on climate change including COP26 advising the EU Commission on creating the European Emissions Trading System. James’s work was instrumental in establishing the regulated carbon market.

Join us to hear from the man himself and his amazing guests – all whom are changing the world – making it a better place for all.
