Introducing the PCAN project | Sam Fankhauser

In the first episode of this series by the Place-based Climate Action Network (PCAN), meet the founder of the PCAN research project, Professor Sam Fankhauser, from the University of Oxford (formerly LSE).

Join co-hosts Professor John Barry, from Queen’s University Belfast, and Kate Lock, from the University of Leeds, to find out how the project was born and how it has managed to help drive local climate action across the UK.

Sam, the first Principal Investigator for PCAN, explains how the project has helped to set up climate commissions - collaborations between the public, private and third sectors. He also discusses his route into studying climate change, what keeps him motivated and his love of yoga.
