The event will be hosted by BBC Radio 1 presenter Gemma Cairney, and star UN Climate Poet Kathy Jetnil-Kijiner and internationally acclaimed beatboxer Shlomo. Also speaking will be David Buckland, director of Cape Farewell – the UK organisation behind the ArtCOP21 programme – and Juliet Davenport, founder of Good Energy.
