Planetary guardians across the generations – Sir David Attenborough and Greta Thunberg – are to discuss climate change at a virtual wildlife film festival.
The Planetary Crisis conversation, which is part of Bristol’s Wildscreen festival, takes place today [20 October 2020] at 19:00BST. The festival organisers say the discussion is a “unique chance to hear two of the most influential figures of our time honestly discussing their opinions”.
Wildscreen said the pair would ask each other questions about what we can do to empower ourselves to look after our planet and their experiences of communicating the impacts humans have and are continuing to make on the environment.
Wildscreen patron, Sir David Attenborough, said: “Never has communicating the threats facing our natural world and the bold solutions required to protect and restore it been so vital. Wildscreen, with its convening power is uniquely placed to support and challenge those who can tell the stories the world needs to hear and see.”
The festival celebrates the work of wildlife photographers, filmmakers and conservationists and runs until 23 October.
