Episode Info: In The Sustainable Hour on 4 December 2019, Mik Aidt has just returned from a speaker-trip in New Zealand, where he talked about the emerging ‘Pause Movement’ and the impact which a wave of ‘Coldplay Moments’ could trigger – if more leading artists and sports teams followed Coldplay’s example and pushed the big Pause Button on their activitities. Could it trigger an entirely new level of bold climate action with emissions slow-down and massive economic disruption around the world? Our 11-year-old youth reporter Ben Pocock is ready with his second report – this time with ten good tips on how each of us can take positive action, and our global outlooker Colin Mockett brings a report from EU and the United Nations climate summit in Spain.

(…) Our next tour will be the best possible version of a tour like that environmentally. We would be disappointed if it’s not carbon neutral. The hardest thing is the flying side of things. But, for example, our dream is to have a show with no single use plastic, to have it largely solar powered. We’ve done a lot of big tours at this point. How do we turn it around so it’s not so much taking as giving?”~ Chris Martin, Coldplay frontman, in a BBC News interview FOALS: ‘Like Lightning’ – 22 November 2019 With news that Coldplay are pausing international touring until it is environmentally viable and Massive Attack building on our 2010 Moving Arts research into the climate impacts of touring Julie’s Bicycle were invited to comment on the subject in the media.With JB’s ten plus years working with the music industry, coalescing ar...
