Can climate change be left in the hands of industrialised nations? After December's failed Copenhagen meeting, Evo Morales, the Bolivian president, says no.

He has organised his own meeting, the People's World Conference on Climate Change and Mother Earth Rights in Cochabamba.

Some 18,000 participants are expected to attend including Hollywood celebrities, scientists, activists and indigenous groups.

The idea is to let grass roots activists lead the debate in the hopes that world leaders will listen and change their approach to climate change before the next UN summit in Mexico.

On Tuesday's Riz Khan show we ask: Can people power turn the tide on climate change before it is too late?

Pablo Solon, Bolivia's ambassador to the UN, and Rob Bradley, the director of climate policy at the World Research Institute join the show.

You can join the conversation. Call in with your questions and comments on Tuesday, April 20, 2010 at our new live time of 1630GMT, with repeats at 2130GMT and the next day at 0230GMT and 1130GMT.
