The UN launches No Denying It, a new 10-part climate action podcast, featuring interviews with inspiring young activists, and the voices of internationally renowned celebrities, such as actors Ed Norton and Michelle Yeoh.
Across the world, young people are refusing to accept the state of the climate, and are fighting to make the planet a better place for them, their families and their communities.
However, their stories tend to be overshadowed by the stream of worrying, and sometimes overwhelming, news surrounding climate change, and the real, immediate, dangers it presents to life in this planet.
The 10 episodes of the series, which is produced by UN News and Good To Do Today, an independent podcast production company, will be released every Thursday, beginning 26 August and ending 28 October, on the eve of the COP26 UIN climate conference in Glasgow, billed as a crucial step towards a more sustainable world.
