Whether you’re a business leader, climate expert, environmental professional, youth activist  – or just someone with a passion for all things sustainability and climate action – this podcast is for you! COP26 Covered podcast brings you everything you need to know from each day of the crucial climate talks, wrapped up into 30-minute episodes.


In today’s episode…

Luke, Matt and Sarah reconnect (virtually) for an action-packed final episode of COP26 Covered, exploring the legacy of COP26 from the perspective of sustainability leaders, Glaswegians and young people.

The team begin with a discussion about the final draft of the Glasgow agreement, before handing over to our first interview of the show: Luke speaks with Kasha Sequoia Slavner, a Gen-Z documentary filmmaker and social justice advocate, about the influence that COP26 may have on younger generations, and vice-versa. 

Next, we speak with Glasgow-born Alan Hendry, a sustainability director at Glasgow-based engineering consultancy Mott MacDonald, about the positive environmental and social impacts that these talks could have on the city and its people.

And finally, Luke attends an evening drinks reception hosted by Formula E, where he sits down with the group’s sustainability director Julia Pallé to discuss the significant involvement the sport has had on this climate summit along with the future of electric mobility.
