Dorset COP is the first ever community-led, county based COP (Conference of Parties) conference. Organised by three of Dorset’s Climate Action Groups, the conference aimed to galvanise the local community into urgent action regarding the climate and ecological crises. Our reporter Rob Mott attended the event and spoke to some of the organisations represented at the conference as well as one of the keynote speakers, Olympic sailor and Portland resident Laura Baldwin.

Note, track 8, an interview with Giles Watts, was recorded in the KeeP 106 studio and previewed the event.
