Facing up to Climate Reality The Forum, Norwich, 10am - 4pm, 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. For more information click here.
The 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.
Climate Jobs in the UK Bristol City Hall, 18.30 - 19.45, Friday 5th October Policies to reduce greenhouse emissions are often attacked for threatening existing jobs. Would there be a net loss of jobs from the transition to a zero-carbon economy, or a net gain? This event will present the results of modelling to estimate the net number of jobs that could be created in each local authority area by the transition to a zero carbon economy, in the key sectors of energy, transport, waste management, buildings and food, farming and forestry.
This is a fringe event as part of the Green Party conference but is open to those not registered at the conference. 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.
