Today on the show, we climb up into the Scottish Highlands in search of the country's last patches of snow. We also talk about how the world's waste problem could be solved if companies were responsible for repairing the products they sell and cleaning up the rubbish from packaging they produce. And we hear from a group of women in India taking trash clean-up into their own hands.
The price of perfume, climate miseducation in schools & tourism's toll
We head to the Comoros Islands, where the world's demand for ylang ylang oil is leaving the region bare and its makers shorthanded. And hear why environmental groups and politicians in Barcelona are angry over plans to attract more tourists. Plus, we speak with a journalist who has investigated the influence of the fossil fuel industry in American schools' climate change education.
Where do we go from here? COP conclusions and doing better
We talk about how to make COP26 goals a reality, get a glimpse into the future of green tech-powered living in Sweden, marvel at meadow-made cheese in Italy, and speak science to power to save the Arctic.
COP26: The heart of the matter
Delegates are running out of time to agree on how to keep global temperatures in check at the UN climate conference in Glasgow. Young people especially are piling on the pressure for action. We hear from DW reporters covering the event and get their impressions. And in Senegal, emissions reductions come too late for the survival of one coastal community already dealing with rising sea levels.
Why global climate conferences matter
This week, we're talking about the biggest environment event of the year – the global climate conference known as COP26. We hear from one of our reporters who's there in Glasgow covering the policy tussles and from an activist who traveled there from Nigeria to make her voice heard, along with many other young people. We also take a look at how climate change is affecting people's lives right now.
