“Unless we take action on climate change, future generations will be roasted, toasted, fried and grilled,” said Christine Lagarde, managing director of the International Monetary Fund. So what happens when those in positions of authority fail to act in the best interests of the citizens they are supposed to be protecting?

Climate change threatens our food security, health, infrastructure and way of life – yet the responses so far have not come close to what scientists say is required. This panel will explore what kind of leadership interventions are being made in our economy, society and politics to attempt to deal with climate change.
