Facing up to Climate Reality - Norwich 29th September 2018
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? 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.

This conference 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.
