In this episode of Upwell, we chat with Nick Nuttall, co-presenter and director at We Don't Have Time and the former head of communications at the United Nations Environment Programme and the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change. Nick is a global leader in climate communications and media who is working to elevate the dialogue to drive global action to address climate change.
In the conversation, we discuss announcements made at COP27 in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, how the global climate convenings have evolved over the years, opportunities and financing needed to accelerate progress towards reaching climate goals, and how to accelerate awareness and action.
