*** This is a free event but registration is necessary ***

With an ever-growing global population and the increasing threat of climate change, the transition from fossil fuels to renewable energy is more important than ever.

In this discussion a world-class panel of experts will highlight:

• The UK’s position in the global energy community.

• What technological innovation and political action needs to be made?

• How achievable is this and what impact can we have as individuals?

We invite you to join us to this interdisciplinary debate as we discuss the challenges and opportunities ahead.
