Inspired by COP26
The 26th UN Climate Change conference (COP26) which took place in Glasgow in November 2021 placed a spotlight on the international climate emergency, with one issue being the notion of collaboration to achieve net zero goals. To turn ambition into action COP26 stated that: “governments, business and civil society need to work together to transform the ways we power our homes and businesses, grow our food, develop infrastructure and move ourselves and goods around.”
In this session we explore the idea of such collaboration and have invited to our event a group of experts from different fields, to sit together to consider if collaborative work to solve the climate crisis is a feasible way forward, and if so, how it can be achieved.
Our panel of experts includes:
- Dr Gail Bradbrook – environmental activist, co-founder of Extinction Rebellion
- Claire Nouvian – environmentalist and writer, founder of Bloom Association aiming to protect the oceans
- Jo Salter – expert on ethical business, award winning social entrepreneur, founder of Where Does It Come From?
- Prof Molly Scott Cato – professor of Green Economics, former MEP, expert on climate finance and climate reparations
- Dani Sinha (Chair) - well known journalist and presenter at ITN’s 5 News
This live session will be held near the end of the first day of the conference and is open to staff and students at Warwick to attend in-person and to all RES conference delegates to watch virtually.
