It was filmed by Tom Swift during last year’s Climate Portals festival at RCS, in partnership with Shared Studios, Harrison Parrott and the British Council, where our portal in Glasgow connected with portals around the world.

In the film, Rachel, Simone and Esther come together with participants in Kigali, Gaza and Erbil to share songs along with hopes and fears for our global future.
