Plymouth Perspectives

Carbis Bay, St. Ives, Cornwall

On 11 June 2021, G7 leaders and invited guests meet in Carbis Bay, Cornwall, UK to explore solutions to some of the greatest global challenges and, united through shared values, take decisive action.

Facing a climate emergency while still in the midst of a global pandemic and its resultant economic devastation – many look to the G7 to understand where do we go from here? These global leaders from the UK, America, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, India, Australia, South Korea and South Africa, aim to ‘Build Back Better'.

We asked Plymouth researchers, leaders in their fields, to give their expert perspective on exactly what should be examined. From another very real global health threat in the form of antimicrobial resistance, sustainable action needed on land and sea to address the climate change crisis, to tackling education inequality and driving global corporation taxes and investment into natural disaster infrastructure – they provide the evidence for global action.
