Drawing clever cartoons is just is one way of raising grassroots awareness about climate change, a leading cartoonist said on Friday, for World Environment Day.

Tom Tirabosco, who's well known in Switzerland for his newspaper work and children's books – said people also need to put "huge pressure" on their governments as they prepare for crunch UN-led climate talks in Paris later this year.

At a UN event in Geneva, Daniel Johnson asked him whether he believed the stage is now set for a successful agreement in the French capital.

The event was organised by the Economic Commission for Europe (UNECE) and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).
