From my first week of working with this talented and friendly team, I knew I had landed in the right place. Where else could I facilitate the application of the latest telecoms and technologies to make cities (and hence the habitat of most of the world's population) more efficient and livable? And if the expression "as goes London, so go the cities of Europe" has factual merit, then my colleagues and I can derive even more motivation from our potential influence.
It has been over a month since the climate change activist group Extinction Rebellion took over the streets of London, amongst other cities, demanding that national governments take immediate action to address climate change. This sort of action is not unfamiliar to the country, however, as the UK Government has been under intense pressure to reduce its carbon emissions and to revisit its current carbon reduction target.
