The truth about the climate crisis is an inconvenient one that means we are going to have to change the way we live our lives. Our climate crisis may at times appear to be happening slowly, but in fact it is happening very quickly – and has become a true planetary emergency.

No presentation is complete without layouts, storyboards or spontaneous sketches, often crucial to the outcome. No computer software, however good it is, can replace the non-computerized marker!
