  • The episode of Radio Davos gives a flavour of the event, and looks ahead to the COP26 climate summit.

"The adolescence of humanity is coming to an end, and must come to an end. We are approaching that critical turning point in less than two months, in just over 40 days, when we must show that we are capable of learning and maturing and finally taking responsibility for the destruction we are inflicting not just upon our planet, but upon ourselves.

"It's time for humanity to grow up."

The speaker: Boris Johnson. The venue: the UN General Assembly. The "turning point": the COP26 summit in Glasgow next month.

As the UK prime minister sought to drum up support for climate action at the UN, other leaders - from business and civil society as well as government - were meeting in the online Sustainable Development Impact Summit.

This episode of Radio Davos listens in to some of what was said and looks ahead to COP26.
