What is ClimateRed.TV?

The humanitarian consequences of the climate and environmental crises are affecting billions of people, and Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers are at the heart of action in their local communities.

In one month, we created ClimateRed.tv, so Red Cross and Red Crescent volunteers and staff could be part of the COP 27 discussions, on 6–18 November in Egypt.

This online news station showcased a live feed at COP 27 and on Youtube, where staff and volunteers from the Red Cross and Red Crescent shared stories of their work all over the world, and engaged in a global live conversation on the climate and environmental crises.

Through ClimateRed.tv, we wanted to show the world the power of local action taken by our staff and volunteers all around the globe, and to encourage people to support and join us.
