    Forever Great in Conversation | Season 2 | Episode 2 with Sarah Wilson Knight | 🎬

    Prior to the world facing the challenges and pain that has arisen due to COVID-19, the Climate Emergency was very much at the core of global conversation. The problem hasn’t disappeared, it’s of course, very much still with us and we have much to do in order to save our most important asset – our planet. With COP26 landing in Glasgow this winter, Scotland will be the epicentre of the global climate conversation. I wanted to speak with someone who knows about the challenges we face, someone who understands the problems and that can share solutions on how we can collectively make a difference. 
    I reached out to Sarah Wilson Knight - a Consultant with NIRAS-LTS, which is an International Development consultancy; and is also Chair of International Engagement for the Board of Trustees for the 2050 Climate Group. Based in Edinburgh, Sarah works in research and programme management on climate resilience and adaptation. She is particularly interested in research into use and advocacy as a means to helping those suffering the most from the climate crisis, and how these solutions can benefit people and nature. 
    During the conversation we discuss her role and passion for a greener, more sustainable world, what we can do as a society to make a difference and contribute to the wider climate strategy, how we can get involved with the 2050 Climate Group and more...
