With the Belmont Estate, Planet Earth Games and Olympians Etienne Stott and Laura Baldwin.

In this episode of the Carbon Copy Podcast Running Out of Time special, we follow the baton as it makes its way through Bristol and into Bath. We meet Gil Martin, Head of Estates at Belmont, an inspiring project based just outside Bristol, which is rewilding, rewetting and restoring landscapes, as well as connecting people locally with the natural environment. We also hear from Planet Earth Games founder Chris Broadbent as he leads a “plog” around Bristol City Centre, before ending the episode in Bath, where Olympic gold medallist Etienne Stott and Olympic sailor Laura Baldwin talk to us about their work using sport to engage people with climate action. 

Listen to hear more about these initiatives, which are all finding ways to inspire more action for climate and nature.
