Christopher C. asks…
​How can we be sure our impact in the United Kingdom will be echoed around the world, with other countries being the main contributor. e.g. Is our impact alone enough?

Kei L. asks…
What is the notable hurdle for different business industries to create better relationships to help drive a collective movement and greater circular business models?

Kei L. asks…
How can we approach as a B2B company to other businesses, and/or public community to create that positive momentum towards that better future? Are there examples? Or key focuses?

Ravinder J. asks…
How will the future generations be educated to understand human impact on our planet and its success?

Ravinder J. asks…
What is the appetite for our business to start a learning academy, around the technology and its benefits?; so to attract young and upcoming talent?

James G. asks…
Animal agriculture is the single biggest contributor to land degredation, habitat destruction, water shortages and water pollution. The single most impactful thing individuals can do to save our planet is to adopt a plant-based diet. This is happening, but not fast enough. What are the barriers?

Andrew T. asks…
​Is there a risk that too many conservation efforts focus on the “big” animals (gorillas, whales, etc.) that humanity has consciously attacked in the past, and not enough on the wide range of biodiversity on Earth that has suffered indirectly from things like habitat loss?

Katie H. asks…
What do we think is the top thing(s) we can do to have a positive effect beyond our personal environmental impact?

Simon V.B. asks…
How do we combat anti-science misinformation, industry lobbying and propaganda to the degree needed to establish a global consensus for action?

Jo J. asks…
How do we find a way to not buy the treats we like, yet benefit the people who depend on selling those things for their living. E.g. I don’t need to eat special organic chocolate, but I’d like to help keep sustainable farmers going so they don’t have to sell their land to other producers

Sophie G. asks…
In my experience, many can be deeply moved by these films, but in the end short-term convenience wins out over longer-term sustainable decisions. How do we combat this? To what extent do we need political legislation to interact with proactive personal and corporate change?

Simon W. asks…
​How can we prevent the climate crisis from further deepening global economic inequalities?

Richard B. asks…

When the evidence is so plain, I struggle to understand how people can deny what’s happening. I regularly see evidence of climate change denial/ignorance (e.g. Facebook). When people have such strongly held beliefs, is there any changing them? What can we do to try and open people’s eyes?

Jol R. asks…
What did you make of “Planet of the Humans” – particularly in terms of revealing corruption in the green energy sector?

Kei L. asks…

​Linking Social Dilemma documentary, how can tech development and AI systems become a tool in support rather than a polariser of sustainability efforts?

Kei L. asks…

How do we communicate, guide, support the developing countries that the Western Dream is no longer the way although we’ve lived it and loved it, avoid hypocrisy as US continues to consume 3x and Europe 1.5x more than the sustainable level of resource?

Erika J. asks…
​With rising global population and economic growth, can renewable energy sources ever meet or keep up with the world energy demands?

Shaun S. asks…
Beyond making small differences in our personal lives that we hope can bring about positive change, I think many people feel helpless to do something that will have a noticeable impact.

Shaun S. asks…
We can change our diets, create less waste, use different methods of travel, but beyond these things, which seem to only affect ourselves, what can we do that will help drive change on a larger scale.

Shaun S. asks…
Can those with leadership and expertise in climate change help inspire movements which may have greater impact?

Ravinda J. asks…
​How can we educate Humans explaining processes, and our technology to come together and form a sustainable baseline? partner with Universities, Colleges ?

Beverley RH. asks…
Our own government hasn’t publicly and openly recognised the available renewable technologies other than off-shore wind – should we not start with educating and putting pressure on the UK Government?

Ana G. asks…
​Environmental issues for many rank after the economy and their wealth. If we placed more focus on social and natural capital metrics of wealth (e.g. clean air and water, diversity), could that help us focus on what is at stake? Would it make a difference if this was reported on as much as GDP?

Scott T. asks…
​I want to know how people with a child or children feel about that decision, about their world their kids are inheriting, and what they do to help them treat it right.

Kei L. asks
​How vital is it for the renewable energy plants (like Solar farms and Wind Farms offshore/onshore) to also be responsible for the biodiversity of that area to help with ReWilding?
