Third Thursday: How can understanding the past help inform the transition to net-zero?

DATE: 25 February, 2021

LOCATION: Online Event

START TIME: 4:00 pm END TIME: 5:15 pm

The transition to net-zero will undoubtedly involve massive technological change, but tightly wrapped up in the process are myriad social, behavioural, cultural, and economic changes.

It is easy to get caught-up in the drive for change, but how do we take a step back and look at the net zero transition in the context of our history and the kind of future we seek? In many ways, we’ve been here before. In this net zero webinar we will ask some important questions: What can we learn from past experience to help ensure the transition to net-zero is one which foregrounds social justice and promotes individual and societal wellbeing? How can we use this knowledge to our advantage?

In this net zero webinar, we will hear from panellists with an interest in the transition to net-zero:
