With more than 30 international speakers, including politicians, musicians, scientists and activists, the daily show will feature lectures, music, climate interviewees and independent broadcasters.
On the back of EarthPercent launched in April by Brian Eno, a charity with initiatives to reduce the music industry’s carbon footprint, the show will also see Eno participating in conversations with daily sound bites while offering DJ selections.

Glasgow’s continued efforts to reduce the carbon footprint of the city – and the world – were noted again recently with the launch of SWG3, a Glasgow nightclub using dancers’ body heat to power the venue’s electricity.
In an effort to achieve net zero, SWG3 will channel “the combined energy of the punters into twelve 150m deep boreholes drilled below the site”, thus powering the site.
