We need to save the world from climate breakdown.



But with inequality growing, democracy in retreat and the far right on the rise, do we really want to save this world, or do we want to change it?



Planet B is a new podcast series from Novara Media which imagines a world that isn’t just saved from climate breakdown, but is renewed and transformed by the fight against it.



Join Dalia Gebrial, Harpreet Kaur Paul, and an array of guests from around the world for a six-part series that explores the future of a global Green New Deal.



We’re talking about the big issues: Work, Land, Infrastructure, Water, Migration and Debt.



We’ll ask: what would it mean for the Green New Deal to be underpinned by a politics of global justice? How can we think beyond the boundaries of the nation? And what would it take to transition to a democratic, decarbonised, resilient and reparative system that works for the global many, not the few?



The climate crisis presents us with an existential threat that requires a global response. It also gives us an urgent opportunity to remake the world into something better.



Join us as we begin to imagine life on Planet B.

Finally- wider perspectives on climate

I’ve been really enjoying listening to this podcast bringing lesser-known and deeply interesting perspectives to talk about climate. The interviews are snappy and still manage to teach you something. I hope this series and related book continue developing into something big!
