On this installment of our series, The Road To COP26 Presented By Octopus Energy, we welcome Indian environmental and climate justice activist John Paul Jose to the show to discuss how young leaders are fighting to make their voices heard at COP26 and the strategies activists are using to make real change at this critical event and beyond. We discuss how young leaders are pushing climate action that delivers just and equitable outcomes, how to elevate the voices of more young people in the Global South, and why new climate organizations led by younger people are making a bigger impact.

Co-hosts Ty Benefiel and Brock Benefiel also discuss big (but complicated!) announcements on phasing out coal and the major ways in which youth leaders are transforming the climate conversation around the globe.
