Join us at 5pm for a special online screening of 'COP-out' - a collaborative multimedia project created by youth activist, photographer and filmmaker; Talia Woodin. This project focuses on the views held by youth climate justice organisers and activists, from around the world, on COP26. Through a short documentary and portrait series, Talia explores the question of the relevance of COP26 for the Global Climate Justice Movement and whether young people still have any hope or faith in the event and in those in power.

Have young people instead taken matters into their own hands and is the real work actually being done outside of the confines of the worlds ‘most important’ climate event? Featuring the voices, experiences and work of numerous individuals and groups from around the world, 'COP-out' aims to bring those, often ignored and unheard voices, to the spotlight and platform them in a truly authentic and grassroots way, from the individuals themselves.

We will be hosting an Instagram Live discussion after the Youtube screening at 5:30pm over on @nottm_contemp with filmmaker Talia Woodin, Nadia Whittome MP, and local activist Eshe Kiama Zuri.
