The IPCC report on global warming of 1.5⁰C focussed attention on the need for urgent, radical action on climate change.

To persuasively demand urgent action for a zero carbon Scotland, it’s important that we have some credible and just ideas in response to the question “how can we do that then?” This event will consider these issues.

  • What policies and societal changes are needed for net zero emissions in Scotland?
  • How close are we to having all the technologies, expertise and skilled workers necessary to decarbonise industry, power generation, home energy use, transport and agriculture?
  • How quickly can we make  a just transition from a high emitting to a zero carbon country?

This is a FREE, public event organised by Dr Rachel Howell, Lecturer in Sustainable Development at the University of Edinburgh. All are welcome, whether or not you have any connection to the University.
