168. We Need Real Zero, Not Business as Usual: A View From Inside COP26

As part of our continued coverage of COP26, this Reboot Republic Podcast talks to campaigners in Glasgow, from Not Here Not Anywhere, the grassroots campaign to end fossil fuel exploration and the development of new fossil fuel infrastructure in Ireland.

The panelists include, Dublin City University (DCU) Business School assistant professor of accounting, Dr Aideen O’Dochartaigh, Dylan Murphy, a Masters student in climate policy in DCU and activist, and Mide Power, a research assistant in equality, diversity and inclusion. They outline how COP26 is working from perspective of civil society groups, the need to focus on real zero emissions rather than net zero which means business as usual, with carbon offsets and continued emissions, the need to hear and have voices from the global south and those most affected central, and the hope that lies in the movements on the streets for the major change required, and the protests planned (including in Dublin) for this Saturday November 6th.

Reminder. A handful of tickets left for the Sugar Club on the 10th Get Them HERE.
