The online launch of the first episode of Cornwall’s Climate Stories, a series of inspirational documentaries about climate change in Cornwall, takes place at 8pm on Thursday 25 February.
The first episode of the series ‘Under the Surface’ looks at how climate change is already affecting the marine environment in Cornwall. But it also offers hopeful and motivating stories about great projects happening around Cornwall to tackle the challenges that climate change is going to bring.

Interviewees featured in the film are:
- Dr Matthew Witt, Exeter University
