The most recent report of the IPCC, released in early August, was described by the UN as a ‘code red for humanity’. It states that climate change is widespread, rapid, and intensifying. The world now anticipates November’s global climate conference, COP26, to see how nations respond to this latest stark warning.
The European Green Deal focuses on the promise to make Europe a net zero emitter of greenhouse gases by 2050. It requires a major transition of the European energy system, away from fossil fuels and towards low carbon or renewable sources of energy. In this context, the European Commission’s Group of Chief Scientific Advisors published a scientific opinion this summer to address the challenges involved in this transition, informed by a review of the evidence by SAPEA, a consortium of European academies.
Change has to be fair and inclusive. It requires public engagement and active participation across the whole of society. What works, and how should it be done?
Join our panel of experts to discuss these critical issues, as we look towards the COP26 conference. You, the audience, will have the opportunity to pose questions and be part of the debate. Our webinar is free and open to all.
