Brian Eno’s EarthPercent launches radio show from COP26 climate summit

INSIDE: COP26 is a daily broadcast from Brian Eno’s newly curated EarthPercent - an organisation combating the climate emergency through the music industry.

The radio broadcast will stream daily via Clyde Built Radio from 12:PM, directly from the heart of Glasgow’s climate summit, COP26. The annual event runs this year from October 31 until November 12 with conferences to discuss the impact of climate change and further prevention.

The broadcast is set to feature key speakers from inside the COP26 summit, as well as music industry figureheads and musicians making an impact on the climate crisis’ realisation across the globe.

Featuring over 30 international speakers, which includes politicians, musicians, scientists, and activists, the daily show will include talks, music, climate interviewees, and independent broadcasters.

Off the back of Brian Eno’s April-launched EarthPercent, a charity with initiatives to curtail the music industry’s carbon footprint, the broadcast will also see Eno take part in the conversations with daily soundbites while offering some DJ selections.

The line-up currently includes guests from Hot Chip, Matt Black, Cosmo Sheldrake, Love Ssega, as well as 10 musical segments and an ‘indigenous voices’ section where hosts will speak to indigenous activists.

The broadcast is set to be hosted and aired via Clyde Built Radio, a newly formed station streaming DJ sets from local and upcoming talent direct from Glasgow's East End.

Glasgow’s ongoing efforts to lower the city’s - and the world’s - carbon footprint was noted again recently with the launch of SWG3, a Glasgow nightclub using dancer’s body heat to fuel the venue’s electricity.

With aims to go net-zero, SWG3 will channel punters’ “combined energy into twelve 150m-deep boreholes drilled beneath the venue,” thus powering the venue.

Tune in to EarthPercent and Clyde Built Radio’s daily broadcast from COP26 after October 31 here.
