This is a big week! On Friday, activists across 150 countries will join #ClimateStrike. We discuss our plans for the climate protest and talk to 350's Thanu Yakupitiyage, who is the epitome of cool, about climate activism and expressing beliefs through art.
Then, we chat with Cassie Flynn of United Nations Development about the UN Climate Action Summit 2019, the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, The Paris Agreement, and how to get really important world leaders to agree on major climate initiatives. She's brilliant and this was fun.
