The world’s leading scientists have warned that we only have 10 years to prevent a climate catastrophe.

While most of us look to institutions to solve societal problems of this scale, a push for greater individual action has also emerged. But can changing the way we live and work really make a difference? And if so, how do we mobilise people to offset their emissions? This Perspectives, featuring acclaimed psychologist Geoff Beattie and freelance writer Tim Smedley, delves into the debate around climate change and personal sacrifice.
