About this Event

In announcing legislation to commit the UK to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 the then Prime Minister Theresa May said "Ending our contribution to global warming by 2050 should be the defining decision of this generation in fulfilling our responsibility to the next." But how will it be done and what are the implications?

This meeting will allow members of the public to hear and pose questions to key participants of the international conference Achieving Net Zero (www.netzero.org.uk), exploring the social, political, ethical, ecological, governance and technical opportunities and challenges of achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions.

The speakers are Amory Lovins, Cofounder and Chief Scientist of Rocky Mountain Institute; David Hone, Chief Climate Advisor for Shell; Radhika Khosla, Research Director of the Oxford India Centre for Sustainable Development; and EJ Fawcett, Oxford Youth School Strikes for Climate.
