Leaders Link Episode 1

A conversation with Lindsay Levin and Tom Carnac

Leaders Link

07 April 2020

Welcome to our first Leaders Link: a series of live-streamed conversations with leaders who have special reflections to share on some of the greatest challenges of our time.

Episode 1 features Tom Carnac, co-architect of the 2015 Paris agreement, and author of The Future We Choose.

At the start of the most consequential decade in human history, the implications of global interconnection are clear.

While the world mobilises to fight COVID-19, we’re seeing humanity’s ability to organise when the stakes are high. How can that momentum be applied to the climate emergency? And how can every citizen play an active role?

Tom looks ahead to the opportunities – and risks – of climate action as the world resets to a 'new normal'. He discusses the need to incentivise new types of growth, and to be at the table when the global conversation turns to post-COVID policy-making.

As climate tech scales up exponentially, and the internet is reborn as a powerful driver of solidarity and support, we hear why Tom believes now is the most exciting time to be alive!

For our second Leaders Link session, Lindsay will be joined by Luis Miranda and Sujata Khandekar, from Mumbai-based NGO CORO. They’ll discuss India's unfolding COVID-19 crisis as daily wage labourers are left stranded with no safety net. What’s CORO’s experience of grassroot communities supporting each other, and what’s the source of their resilience?
