About this Event
In February 2020, Bristol launched the ambitious One City Climate Strategy committing to becoming carbon neutral and climate resilient by 2030. The Strategy calls for a fair and collaborative approach based upon a just transition, but how can we ensure that happens? And how do we make sure a just transition is also carbon neutral and climate resilient?
During the Cabot Institute for the Environment’s prestigious Annual Lecture, thought leaders will discuss the challenges, barriers, and opportunities to achieve a just transition to a post-carbon economy.
There will be an opportunity for attendees to ask questions at the event or you can submit questions during this booking process. Please note, due to the number of questions that get submitted we may not be able to cover all of them during the event.
- Chris Stark, Chief Executive of the Committee on Climate Change – keynote speaker
- Jaya Chakrabarti MBE, President of Bristol Chamber of Commerce & West of England Initiative
- Gnisha Bevan, Co-Creator and Co-Lead of the Black Seeds Network
- Dr Ed Atkins, just transition scholar, University of Bristol
