My Extinction by Josh Appignanesi

The documentary feature film MY EXTINCTION has been invited to screen at the COP28 Climate Conference in Dubai on Wednesday 6th December at 18:00.  

Playing in the Green Zone with Extreme Hangout, a diversity-and-climate action NGO with a social media reach of 200m monthly views, the Q&A panel with filmmaker Josh Appignanesi and arts and film producers Paul Goodenough (Rewilding Extinction) and Jessica Hines (Fingerprint Content) will be streamed globally.

Exploring the barriers to climate action, the film asks "why is it that so many are worried about climate, yet do almost nothing about it?" It finds answers in learning to share our feelings collectively -- then digs down into the world of the powerful vested interests whose mission it is to stymie and paralyse us, raising in protest the voices of figures like Mark Rylance, Simon Schama, AL Kennedy and Zadie Smith.

Youth Climate Training: Lessons Learned and Inspiration

Oxford Net Zero- Global Youth Coalition youth climate training programme oversaw the training of 4,500 activists on the negotiation items of the UNFCCC in just six months. This initiative was born out of a genuine need expressed by young individuals who often find themselves lacking in confidence to engage authoritatively on complex technical matters of UNFCCC. In this workshop, Oxford Smith School will gather youth activists to share the key messages for those attending COP28 and to make another joint call for a larger focus on youth capacity-building.
