We are all feeling the impacts of climate change, but those people in the world who have contributed the least to the problem, are experiencing it the most, and the hardest.
Global South countries have fought hard to get Loss and Damage on the agenda. And our COP27 Series kicks off with this.
To get you in the know, we have put together a range of Global Greens experts to put this vital topic in context, and describe what needs to happen at COP to ensure Climate Justice is delivered.
Sign up here for 11am UTC, Tuesday 4th October.
