Geo for Earth - Episode 1: COP26 took place in November 2021. Where are we now?

Posted on: 19/05/2022

Geo for Earth is a podcast series that explores the critical role that location intelligence and space data have in helping us understand our planet and tackle climate change. Organised by Andy Bennett - Space Lead, and Luca Budello - Geospatial Lead at Innovate UK KTN, the eight 40-minute episodes will feature discussions around a specific topic with two guest speakers including policy makers, sector specialists, and emerging thinkers.

 

What is the state of play post COP26? How can we continue to implement the actions discussed during the UN Climate Change Conference? What is the role of collaboration in support our net zero ambitions? And how can we maintain action and public interest in the climate emergency when dramatic international events take up the news headlines? These are the key questions that we will look at in the first episode of the Geo for Earth podcast.

Guests:

Chris Stark – CEO, UK Climate Change Committee (CCC)
John Remedios – Director, the National Centre for Earth Observation (NCEO)

Moderators:

Suzie Imber – Space physicist, University of Leicester
Dallas Campbell – Science and technology TV presenter
