Engineering in the climate emergency
HOW CAN TECHNOLOGY WORK TOWARDS A JUST TRANSITION?
Reaching net-zero carbon emissions will mean a managed transformation of society. Depending on how they are used, zero-emission technologies, economics and behaviours could worsen or improve poverty, accessibility, health, and community life.
In this joint event with the Royal Academy of Engineering, discover the answers to questions like:
- Can we rely on technology to fix the climate?
- How can science and engineering work with politics and society to positively and just transition to net-zero?
- Are we kidding ourselves about how big a challenge we face to decarbonise the economy?
