Every year since 1970, Earth Day is recognised by more than a billion people as a day of action to examine the impacts humans have on our environment and advocate for policy change on a global scale. Five years ago, the Paris agreement was signed and, in this webinar, we will be reflecting on what has changed in the past few years, and what can still be done to restore our earth and protect people from the worst impacts of climate change.
For this discussion, we are delighted to be joined by strategist, author, broadcaster and ClientEarth Ambassador, Dr Gabrielle Walker, as well as our Director of Litigation, Compliance & Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning, Amy Rose.
