Pelorus attend WWF’s State of the Planet Address

On Thursday 28 October, three members of the Pelorus and Pelorus Foundation teams, Charlie, Geordie, and Bella, attended the WWF’s State of the Planet address in London. Hear our team’s thoughts on the event.

With the critical COP26 climate summit currently underway in Glasgow, the WWF’s State of the Planet Address proved to be a powerful event for attendees to learn more about the climate crisis and stand together with others passionate about working to limit these devastating consequences on our world. Through an immersive production, the event highlighted a severe ‘code red’ for humanity. Devastatingly, we are facing extreme flooding, serious heat waves, extensive ice sheet loss, and species extinction.

The guest speaker for the evening was Christiana Figueres, an internationally recognised leader on global climate change. Outlined in her fantastic speech, this decade we must cut our greenhouse gas emissions in half by 2030 and reverse the devastating loss of nature we are witnessing. We now have the opportunity to decide our own future, a crucial test of whether the powers can keep their promise of a safer climate for future generations.
