All Fired Up Digital Reccomendations

About the event

Fire, one of the four classical elements, represented energy and warmth. It represented power. But most importantly, it represented passion. And even though thousands of years later our understanding of fire has come on leaps and bounds, that has never changed. That is why we are All Fired Up about the climate crisis. 

It is essential that we look towards creating a more sustainable future, avoiding the perils and pitfalls along the way. We are sure there are ways of reducing our impact on the planet, and we want to discuss how to do this with you! What changes can we make? Which habits can we break? How is Scotland, and the wider world, doing its bit to change the course of the future? The power is in our hands and it’s time to make it happen. 

Below are our team's favourite digital resources on the subject of climate change and how we deal with the challenges it poses us. Think podcasts, TED Talks and much more!

PODCASTS

Outrage and Optimism

"This is a fantastic podcast co-hosted by our very own Edinburgh Medal winner, Christiana Figueres. Each episode they have a different guest from a different industry and walk of life to discuss particular elements of the climate crisis and how people are responding. Guests have included Greta Thunberg, The CEO of Beyond Meat Ethan Brown, Former US Secretary of State John Kerry, David Attenborough, Jane Goodall, Stella McCartney and loads more.  

The podcast’s ethos is that we need to be both outraged about the current situation with climate change but also optimistic about our abilities to tackle it."  Will, EdSciFest

What's in your climate crisis survival kit? 
It's hard not to be pessimistic about the climate crisis and the future of our environment. The kind folks over at Nesta have put together an alternative survival kit, one that's more about thriving than surviving - but you are going to need to be an active part. Check it out here.
