Can we build a climate-resilient world?
Jonathon PorrittJonathon PorrittHD, subtitles, Q&ATranscript52m
Climate change is resulting in ever-more intense weather events of all kinds, from heat waves and forest fires to hurricanes and floods. If extreme weather becomes the new normal, can we survive it? And if so, how?

The world’s climate crisis means we are seeing more intense storms, rising sea levels, increased drought, and more human suffering. Fortunately, we already know how to protect our cities, streets and homes through new technology, innovation, and the mobilisation of younger and older generations of people across the world.

But what is the roadmap to work together and make sure we can adapt to climate change? What infrastructures can we build over the next ten years that secures a safer world for ourselves, our children and our grandchildren? And how can we cultivate collective resilience?

Jonathon Porritt is a British environmentalist and writer, and the Chancellor of Keele University, with nearly 50 years of work under his belt in the field of sustainable development. He joins us in The Garden to explore the science of climate change and how we can survive it.
