Living Planet: Green protests, greener clubs

Thursday 21st February 2019

As a global phenomenon, it's no wonder that climate change's impacts can be felt in our work, home life, and even our leisure activities. This is leading people to take to the streets, as is the case with recent climate action protests in France, and to make more sustainable choices in the least likely of places.


Living Planet: Setting a precedent

Thursday 14th February 2019

When it comes to the health of our planet, we often look to the example set by others. This week on Living Planet, we take a look at one U.S. state that is trying to set the bar high, one area in Chile that has a dismally low environmental record, and we speak with an environmental lawyer trying to set new precedents in Europe and beyond.

Living Planet: Taking Action!

Living Planet: Paying for the hidden costs

Thursday 17th January 2019

From fossil fuels to water usage, our consumption has causes hidden environmental damage further along the supply chain. In this episode of Living Planet, we assess how Argentina is performing against its climate goals, whether Germany can phase out coal whilst protecting workers, where we get our drinking water from and how overuse of water is causing Indonesia’s capital to sink into the sea.


Living Planet: Bringing home a different kind of bacon

Thursday 10th January 2019

Humans have an interesting relationship with meat. Some love it, some object to it and some simply want other options from time to time. We take a look at some of the reasons people reduce their meat consumption, what options they have and why eating less meat is having a mostly positive impact on the planet. Plus, we look at how agriculture affects water consumption.


Living Planet: Making changes

Thursday 3rd January 2019

The new year is a time for reflection, making changes and figuring out ways we can make this year better than the last. We explore stories about good food and meet the people who are making sure there’s enough of it to go around. Plus, we discover how climate change is affecting our health.


Living Planet: Christmas after climate change
