In this episode, we speak to Anna Leidreiter, Director of Climate & Energy at the World Future Council.

In the episode, Anna talks about how work in the World Future Council has been redirected during the pandemic, while she and Robin explore links between the challenges of the coronavirus outbreak and the climate crisis. What is the best protection for future situations, like those we are currently experiencing?

In terms of leadership, they discuss whether governments are using the opportunity around the coronavirus to work towards a greener future? Can markets fix the system? And what role should political leaders take in response to market forces?

Anna and Robin explain why a strong democratic system is necessary and discuss how we should work when we are presented with strategic leadership messages, such as the voices coming from the science community – highlighting the countries and cities displaying informed and inclusive decision making.
