It's up to young people to tell world leaders that the world is failing over climate change, "because we know we are". That's the view of our guest, 14-year-old Lavinia Iovino, who this week is taking part in Mock COP26, a youth alternative to the regular round of adult COP conferences which this year was postponed due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Some 350 delegates are taking part virtually in the event from 150 different countries. She joined us for Perspective.
