The impact of climate change is becoming more and more visible. Some of the most vulnerable people in the most fragile contexts are finding their homes and livelihoods at risk. Will the Paris Agreement alter our behaviour and hence our levels of carbon emissions? Is real change in the hands of governments or individuals? This Just Festival Conversation will look at what is being done to help communities around the world respond to these threats and whether disaster can be avoided.
