What happened at the event
Leading environmental campaigner, Jonathan Porritt, delivered the 2018 Sue Lloyd-Roberts memorial lecture, 'Sustainability - does anyone out there care?' In his talk, he shared some worrying statistics about the (lack of) media coverage of the environment. In 2016, the total direct coverage of climate change on four major USA news channels was 24 minutes. Mr Porritt then led an interesting discussion and answered questions from audience members about the future and sustainability.
