COP26: ‘The role of the artist is to make the revolution irresistible’, says artist behind forest installation

With the world leaders now gone, discussions are spreading across Glasgow, including this building, which is host to the New York Times Climate Hub, where we are an affiliate broadcaster.

Next door, the artist and set designer Es Devlin has installed a forest in the main hall, made up of 197 trees and plants, representing the countries which have signed up to the UN’s climate goals.

We spoke to her and Kumi Naidoo, the South African human rights and environmental activist.
