Coming to Grips with Climate Change
The recent UN report urging swift and dramatic action to curb the rise of the planet’s temperature, paints a stark picture of our near future. Experts argue that avoiding a crisis will require significant breakthroughs in renewable technology, a full stop on fossil fuel projects, fundamental changes to the way we feed the world, and a ubiquitous application of carbon taxes, among other measures. Who will lead the charge towards a multilateral response — public, private, or otherwise? Can we get to near-zero emissions by 2050 while maintaining or even improving our standards of living? We’ll hear from the smartest thinkers in industry, policy, and design, whose ingenuity and passion can lead the way.
