For collective action to succeed, we need to influence the influential. Who should we be targeting here, and how do we communicate about climate change in a way that actually makes a difference? We hear inspiring stories of everyday people making big changes through their words, voices and stories, meet friends in the Pacific who’ve been fighting this fight for decades, and work out how we’re going to change course to a heaps better future, together.
