Project Earth and Intelligence2 presents: a moment to meet the young climate change activists fighting for a cleaner, greener future.
From New York to Nairobi, the next generation has been globally admired for demanding greater action on climate change. Join us for an inspiring debate with young activists about the causes they are fighting for, from plastic pollution to deforestation, as we discuss the importance of inspiring change.
Intelligence Squared has established itself as the leading forum for live, agenda-setting debates, talks and discussions around the world. Their aim is to promote a global conversation that enables people to make informed decisions about the issues that matter, in the company of the world’s greatest minds and orators.

21-year-old climate activist and the founder of Force of Nature, a launchpad helping Gen Z step up, rather than shut down, in the face of the climate crisis. Clover has worked alongside the world’s leading authorities on sustainability, mobilised mindsets in UK classrooms, and consulted within Fortune 500 boardrooms. She recently launched the Force of Nature podcast, a series interviewing ordinary people doing extraordinary things to save the planet.

She founded Swopitup at her school when she was just 15 and two years later she is coordinating a group of volunteers to run the initiative in schools nationwide. She works with a campaign group called Teach the Future that aims to reorient the entire education system around the climate emergency and ecological crisis. She also volunteers for Mock COP, an international youth-led project, mirroring that of COP26 (the UN Climate Change Conference), raising global awareness to tackle the climate crisis.
