A video series
There’s no two ways about it: the planet is on fire. In between games of ping pong and pruning their plants, middle aged men Alan and Ron are starting to get a little worried. What power do they have to help change the big picture?
Join these two loveable clowns on a fantastical 10-video journey to the UN’s 26th climate conference (COP26), which is being held in Glasgow this year. In a comedic quest to find out what it’s all about, expect laughs, sustainable transport tips, and Irn Bru in all the wrong places.
