Continuing Drama has a long and proud history of tackling social issues on screen, breaking down complicated often divisive subjects for its audience and helping viewers to explore topics through the eyes of their favourite characters.
So can our soaps help save the planet?
What is their role in bringing the complex issues that surround sustainability to our audiences (the masses)? And how can they empower communities to understand and debate the role they can play to mitigate the effects of climate change, if they choose to?
Join our inspiring session with a panel including Jane Hudson (Executive Producer, Emmerdale), Kate Oates (Head of Continuing Drama, BBC Studios), Rebecca Ramsden (Writer, Hollyoaks), and Nader Mabadi (Head of Production, Emmerdale) as they discuss the creative challenge they’re facing and how they’re tackling it.
