High Profile names call for action on Climate Change
Many high profile figures including Desmond Tutu and Vivienne Westwood are calling for mass climate change action ahead of the UN's Paris conference in December. Their statement, published in the book Stop Climate Crimes, reads "We are at a crossroads. We do not want to be compelled to survive in a world that has been made barely liveable for us..." In this show Georgie finds out more from 350.org who are one of the environmental groups behind the project.

Is this the answer to the housing and care crisis?
93-year-old Paula and 47-year-old Alison might seem like unlikely roomates at first, but they're part a homeshare programme which pairs people who need a small amount of help to live independently in their own home with someone who has a housing need and can provide support or companionship. So could this be the answer to help solve a housing crisis and a care crisis at the same time? Georgie investigates with Anna McEwen from Shared Lives Plus.
