Prof. Kevin Anderson talk

Can meaningful hope spring from revealing the depth of our climate failure?

We are delighted to welcome our special guest speaker Kevin Anderson, Professor of Energy and Climate Change (Tyndall Centre).

He will discuss what the Paris Agreement means in terms of cutting climate emissions equitably, the risks of speculative but 'politically palatable' technologies and whether the emergence of new and vociferous climate constituencies gives cause for hope.
