On the 9th April, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) will be finalising their latest report on the emissions reductions needed to manage climate change.
But can we cut emissions on time? And what would it look like here in the UK?
Join the Zero Carbon Britain team for an evening of practical solutions, safe futures and thinking big as they present their latest research on creating a zero emissions modern society, using only currently available technology.
‘Zero Carbon Britain: Rethinking the Future’ is the flagship research project from the Centre for Alternative Technology. The latest report contains the most detailed work to date on ‘keeping the light on’ in a 100% renewable energy system, and feeding ourselves well on a healthy, low-carbon diet.
Chaired by Owen Jones (columnist, commentator and author of 'Chavs: The Demonisation of the Working Class') with an introduction and scene-setter from Duncan Clark (Guardian environment consultant editor, director at Kiln and author of 'The Burning Question'), researchers Tobi Kellner and Alice Hooker-Stround will present their work, and how we can use this, followed by a Q&A session.
Join us afterwards for more informal discussion. Bar and light food will be available until 9.15pm.
This event will be broadcast live online for all those unable to attend in person. Register to receive the online link.
If we cannot imagine the solution, we will surely stay stuck in the problem. Please join us for what promises to be an informative and inspiring evening.
