Dale Vince and Birdgirl


Dale Vince and Birdgirl, also known as Mya-Rose Craig, talk everything from activism, to bird watching, and the role of young people in the fight against the climate crisis.

They share their experiences of ‘the elephant in the room’: Veganism, as well as how they both stay positive and motivated towards creating a more sustainable future – and they give us some answers for what to say to climate deniers!

You can read more about Dale Vince, founder of Ecotricity, in his book, Manifesto, available to buy now and you can follow Birdgirl on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.

Climate Clock

The Climate Clock is a version of the Doomsday clock that has been running since 1947 - this tracks the risk of global man-made disaster, through man made technology (like nuclear weapons) - displaying the minutes and seconds left before midnight, when disaster strikes. The climate crisis is a small part of the calculations made.
The climate clock uses a similar approach, but, focuses only on the climate crisis - which is the biggest and most urgent existential threat we face.
"The Climate Clock is a countdown to the biggest man-made disaster we face - but also a measure by which we can track our progress - moving from fossil to renewable energy. It shows we have no time to lose - the clock is ticking…" Dale Vince, OBE.
Ecotricity is a sponsor of the Glasgow Climate Clock that will run every night until COP26.
