With an esteemed panel of speakers this side-event examines the global response to what climate science is telling us: to stabilise our climate system and stay below the internationally agreed limit of 2ºC with high certainty, we must rapidly eliminate man-made emissions of greenhouse gases and phase-out fossil fuel use almost entirely by around mid-century. The good news is that there is a wealth of peer-reviewed and robust research showing a phase out of greenhouse gasses, especially from fossil fuels, can be achieved – with existing technology. A new report will be presented containing an initial mapping of scenarios at national, regional and city level.
We hope the side event will also catalyse a network of zero carbon practice and call on all those working in this area to join with us. For more information see the flyer here: Zero Modelling Side Event Invite 4th June
