Rob Penn: How to Look After Your Own Pixel
is easy to become overwhelmed listening to the talks and pledges that have emerged from the recent COP 27 Climate Conference in Egypt. Global commitments make great soundbites. But they also remove agency from the vast majority of people on the planet. Rob Penn – ‘reformed’ lawyer, journalist, author and broadcaster – co-founded the woodland creation and landscape restoration charity Stump Up For Trees in 2020 to help mitigate the climate and biodiversity crises in his own backyard, the Brecon Beacons in south-east Wales. In this discussion, Rob promises to take us through his own stories rewilding, recycling and reimagining his way through his own natural environment. He will talk about how direct action and finding a community of like-minded people to bring about change in their immediate landscape has been a life raft as the existential threat of climate change swells around us.
