How to succeed at saving the planet

How to succeed at saving the planet

By Neil Thornton + Jack Ratcliffe

The current state of the planet has hit the headlines over the past few weeks with the actions of Extinction Rebellion in London and other European countries, and the proposal of a Green New Deal in the US. But what about countries that are already making waves in the fight for the planet? We look at some key places leading the charge to reduce the usage of fossil fuels, lower carbon emissions and increase the use of renewable energy as well as taking the right steps toward tackling consumption by seeking out innovative and ingrained recycling and re-use into every day. We continue the global view with a look at the countries where you, our beloved listeners, are turning in from, the effects Pokemon had on us all as kids and a new book by Riyadh Khalaf for young gay boys that's bringing joy to the queer community.
