Do you hear the calls to fight climate change? The calls to mitigate its impact? To be more sustainable to preserve our planet for the generations to come? Sometimes, these calls leave us overwhelmed and confused. And at times, we still ask ourselves, ‘How should we deal with the changing climate?’, ‘What is our response? Is it fast enough?’, ‘How do we make sure that no one is left behind?' With the help of people of climate action around the globe, Anne-Sophie Garrigou, Editor-in-Chief of The Beam Magazine, and Anna Siwecka discuss how to include and inspire a greater number of people to participate in fighting climate change. They talk sustainable design, energy access and transition, women empowerment and more. They reach to the grassroots level, and go beyond cultures. And all of this, to stress the urgency of acting now and to equip us all in the tools needed to take action. Tune in to The Beam Podcast!

How to Build Sustainable Cities of the Future
About 4,2 billion of us—more than half of humanity—live in cities today. By 2030, which is barely 11 years from now, this figure is expected to reach 5 billion. This rapid urbanisation is exerting a huge pressure on fresh water supplies, sewage, the...
Powering the Globe with 100% Renewables
Let’s start with a seemingly basic but crucial subject in the context of fighting climate change. Is it possible to power our planet with 100% renewable? If so, how do we do that and how can we accelerate the transition? How do we stop subsidising...
