24 Hours of Reality 2017 | South Africa: Rethinking Business as Usual

In South Africa, the frontlines of the fight for climate solutions are often the frontlines of the fight for greater equality and opportunity, energy access, and good governance.

In this hour, we explored how activists driving progress on climate and pushing the state utility to scale back coal are also helping create a more fair and just South Africa. We talked to leaders at the forefront of this movement, such as the Most Reverend Dr. Thabo Cecil Makgoba, the Archbishop of Cape Town and Metropolitan of the Anglican Church of Southern Africa, and Honourable Solly Msimanga, Executive Mayor of Tshwane.

The hour also featured music and an appearance from multi-platinum singer Ellie Goulding, sharing her perspectives on the global climate fight.
