As world leaders get ready to gather in Glasgow, we take a look at COP26 – the best chance we have of preventing climate carnage…

How much will it cost to save the planet?
The amount is apparently around $50 trillion. It sounds like a big amount but we look into how it needs to be spent, how it compares to the cost of other calamities such as Covid, and find out it’s a pretty small price to pay.

Vital young voices
Grace Maddrell, a 16-year-old campaigner, says we must listen to young activists from countries already on the frontline of the climate crisis

A day in the life 2050
What difference will sticking to emission targets make? We travel to the future to find out the best and worst-case scenarios…

The point of protest
In a rare interview with controversial campaigners Insulate Britain, they explain why the time for polite activism is over

Fixing environmental problems isn’t easy – but we look at the innovative people already making a positive difference

The Big Issue

The Big Issue’s own-brand products support the creation of a range of work-based opportunities for disadvantaged people.
The Big Issue has spent over 27 years at the helm of self-help revolution. It all began with the launch of The Big Issue magazine in 1991, which was created to offer homeless and disadvantaged people the opportunity to earn a legitimate income by selling a magazine on the streets. Since then over 200 million copies magazine have been sold by over 100,000 people. Vendors buy the magazine upfront for £1.50 and sell it on to the public for £3.00, and in doing so each runs their own micro-enterprise. In 2005 Big Issue Invest was launched, with the aim of extending The Big Issue’s mission by financing the growth of social enterprises and charities across the UK. To date the organisation has directly invested in over 350 such organisations, and manages or advises on more than £170 million of social funds.
