PODCAST: The power and energy of women and girls – gender day at COP26 The Lid is On

    • News

Little Amal, the giant puppet of a Syrian refugee girl was, literally, the biggest figure at COP26 on Tuesday, where the main theme was gender.

She took to the main stage today, alongside Samoan climate activist Brianna Freuan, who reminded delegates that women and girls bear the brunt of the climate crisis.

The day also focused on issues surrounding science and innovation so, in today’s episode of The Lid Is On from COP26 in Glasgow, Conor Lennon and Laura Quiñones explore how hard it can be to communicate scientific information, and the potential impact of low-cost, readily available technology including…the power of dance!
