We invite you to visit One Chance Left, a collection of poems created by climate scientists and health professionals for the COP 26 UN Climate Change Conference.
Climate scientists, healthcare professionals, and academics from the University of Exeter and the Met Office at the forefront of the climate and health crisis have come together to create poems to deliver key climate change and health messages. This collaboration at the intersection of science and the humanities hopes to inspire, inform and call to action.
One Chance Left is a collection of 12 poems for the 12 days of COP26 that are narrated by high-profile speakers and accompanied by nature sounds. This poetry screening launch will take place in the Arctic Base Camp Tent at The Fringe Festival hosted by Federated Hermes International during COP26.
The poems produced focus on key environments, (deserts, Arctic/tundra, tropical forests, savannah, oceans and rivers) and existential challenges (equity and social justice, water, food, antibiotics, health, climate migration, pollinators).
