In recent years, the urgency to reduce global warming has become common knowledge and climate solutions are being sought in order to make a difference and have a high impact, not only in people’s daily lives, but also in organisational settings.
In this interactive lecture, Professor Petra Molthan-Hill will share insights from her research with ‘Coronation Street’, while exploring the best climate solutions, with a special focus on climate change mitigation. This means embedding the best solutions now, so that countries no longer have to keep adapting further to accelerating climate change.
These climate solutions will be set in the context of climate chance science, such as carbon sinks and climate justice, for example exploring the embodied carbon of an SUV in relation to the annual emissions of a citizen in the most vulnerable countries. However, the focus will be on inspiring everyone in the audience to choose one of the solutions for their daily life and for their work (in whatever organisation they are based). Ideas on how to teach climate change mitigation education and how to accelerate the transition through impactful research will be also given. You might be in with a chance to win a prize too!
