‘Action now, now, now. I am optimistic about the future, but only if we get enough people together right now to take action.’

This video presents a fascinating conversation about the key issues facing the planet, and what we can do to meet the challenges of climate change. 

Hosted by wildlife biologist Lizzie Daly, the conversation brings together legendary ethologist and conservationist Dr Jane Goodall, DBE, founder of the Jane Goodall Institute and UN Messenger of Peace; Environmental Scientist Dr Tara Shine; and 17-year old climate activist Anna Kernahan.

  • Through nearly 60 years of ground-breaking work, Dr. Jane Goodall has shown us the urgent need to protect chimpanzees from extinction. She has also redefined species conservation to include the needs of local people and the environment. Today she travels the world, speaking about the threats facing chimpanzees and environmental crises, urging each of us to take action on behalf of all living things and the planet we share.
  • Dr Tara Shine is an Environmental Scientist, working freelance as an adviser to governments, world leaders and policy makers on climate change, climate justice and sustainable development. Her book ‘How to Save Your Planet One Object at a Time’ was released in April 2020 to critical acclaim.
  • Anna Kernahan is a climate activist, the founder of Fridays for Future in Belfast and the only weekly climate striker in Northern Ireland. Anna is passionate about the climate crisis and activism to bring about real change.

This film is presented in partnership with the Northern Ireland Science Festival.
