Description

Young people have focused greater attention on urgent climate action through their high profile #FridaysforFuture school strikes. A call has gone out for everyone to join the global climate strikes on 20 September.

To coincide with this, Arup, in conjunction with the Linen Quarter BID, are pleased to invite you to an expert panel debate on the climate emergency, focusing on the actions needed to begin to tackle issues on transport, energy, buildings and more. A complimentary breakfast will be provided.

The debate will be chaired by Chris McCracken, Linen Quarter BID and Diane Emerson, Arup, questions debated will include:

David Surplus, B9 Energy - "How will we power ourselves? If not oil and gas, what?"

Ciaran Fox, RSUA - "Why do we allow people to rent out poorly insulated buildings?"

Anne Madden, Sustrans - "Who's going to tell my mate Steve he has to stop with all that driving?"

David Gavaghan, Aurora Prime Real Estate Ltd - "Do we need to talk about population?"

Kerry Melville, Belfast Food Network, "Do we all have to go vegan?"

Gregor Fulton, Woodland Trust, "How many trees would make a difference?"
