Sky announces a one-off documentary, COP26: In Your Hands, which launches on Sky Kids and streaming service NOW on 18 October ahead of the UN Climate Change Conference, COP26 in November.
The 30-minute Sky Original documentary, commissioned by Sky Kids, COP26: In Your Hands is introduced by HRH Prince Charles who outlines his concerns for the planet. The programme also features UK Prime Minister Boris Johnson, as the host of COP26.
Each film explores how these countries are already seeing the devastating impact of climate change, including rising temperatures, ice caps melting, droughts, flooding, bushfires, wildlife depletion and soya plantations, all through the eyes of the next generation, and highlights some of the inspirational projects in their countries tackling the climate emergency.
Lucy Murphy, Director of Kids Content, Sky, said: “We all have a responsibility to do what we can to help protect our planet for the next generation. With Sky Kids, we want to produce content that not only inspires, excites, and engages young people but also helps them learn about important issues, such as climate change. COP26: In Your Hands features six incredible teenagers, whose actions and words I believe will really resonate with our audiences. I hope this film inspires many to take action.”
COP26: In Your Hands will air on Sky Kids and streaming service NOW on 18 October.
