Facing up to Climate Reality

Saturday 29th September 2018 - 10:00

What is the reality of climate change that is facing us? How likely is it that we will limit warming to 1.5, or 2 degrees? If we did take the science seriously and set targets and policies that reduced greenhouse gas emissions by the amount required what would that mean for our economy? How many jobs could we create? What are the possible futures for our rural areas? This free one day conference will consider these questions, as well as what we can learn from past extreme weather events for how we might cope in the future.

Speakers include:
Rupert Read, Brian Heatley, Jonathan Essex, Peter Sims and Anne Chapman from Green House, Asher Minns from UEA and Simon Fairlie (author of Meat: a Benign Extravagance and editor of The Land magazine).

This event is organised by the Green European Foundation with the support of Green House think tank and with the financial support of the European Parliament to the Green European Foundation.
