About this issue
In our September/October issue we look at Net Zero and question whether this has become the catchphrase for politicians and businesses worldwide wanting to demonstrate their commitment to solving the climate crisis. As the UK prepares to host COP26 we ask if this goal is greenwash or our only hope of keeping global temperatures to under 1.5°C.
In the Ecologist section Tim Saunders looks at global CO2 targets ahead of COP26; Magid Magid introduces the Union of Justice – a European, independent, people-of-colour-led organisation dedicated to racial justice and climate justice; and Julia Travers reports from the US on a campaign to create more tree cover – for everyone.
Keynotes features a rare interview between conservationist and environmentalist, Mya-Rose Craig and Jane Goodall. In Wisdom & Wellbeing Venerable Thich Thanh Huan explains how caging birds causes bad karma and in Arts Bay Garnett speaks to Livia Firth, a sustainability consultant who is turning the red carpet green.
