Greece is already seeing the dramatic effects of global warming, from the latest floods, to the unprecedented events of last summer's wildfires.

Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis opened his speech at the COP26 summit in Glasgow last month with a plea for urgent change, showing just how important the issue of climate change is for Greece.

"We are running out of time, and we need to act now," he told world leaders last month. 

Although Greece has a relatively small carbon footprint, it's taking big steps towards a green transition, such as closing coal-fired power stations and a net-zero carbon emissions goal the government said aims "to change the way people live."
