The Foreign Desk: How to communicate a long-term crisis – the challenge of climate fatigue

Oddleiv Apneseth/
What effect has Greta Thunberg had on the attitudes of her fellow Swedes? Communicating the reality of climate change has proven to be notoriously tricky. This episode focuses on how to communicate climate emergencies without running the risk of climate fatigue. 

Monocle’s “The Foreign Desk” has teamed up with the Nordic Council of Ministers for a new series of five special episodes that delve deeper into sustainability issues and other topics of global importance from the region.

In this episode, you will hear other perspectives in the climate debate, from the corporate sector and government to grass-roots campaigners, and find out how they’re confronting climate-change deniers without painting a future that's too dystopic.  

Tune into The Foreign Desk (link below) for new insights from Michael Booth and his brilliant line-up of guests:
