Episode 7 - "The Future We Choose", with Christiana Figueres & Tom Rivett-Carnac

By Extinction Rebellion Podcast

Friday, 20 March

In this episode we’re talking to a world leader in the climate movement, Christiana Figueres. Christiana was the Executive Secretary of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change from 2010 to 2016 and is credited with securing the Paris Agreement in 2015.

She is joined by her co-author Tom Rivett-Carnac, who was her Senior Political Adviser at the UN and now works with her on a podcast called "Outrage and Optimism". Together they wrote 'The Future We Choose".

*The Extinction Rebellion Podcast would like to apologise for mistakenly referring to Christiana and Tom's podcast as Global Optimism. The podcast is called "Outrage and Optimism" but can be found on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram @GlobalOptimism.*

Extinction Rebellion has three demands.

1) Tell the Truth - Government must tell the truth by declaring a climate and ecological emergency, working with other institutions to communicate the urgency for change.

2) Act Now - Government must act now to halt biodiversity loss and reduce greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2025.

3) Beyond Politics - Government must create and be led by the decision of a Citizens' Assembly on climate and ecological justice.
