Using their position in society to amplify their voice and increase awareness is a necessary step to ensure the message of our climate crisis is reaching as many people as possible.

After an amazing few hours of drink, food and environmental chit chat we had put the world to rights (we are awaiting our Nobel Peace Prize), and he kindly offered to spare his time for an interview via Skype which we are extremely grateful for!
