The UK has no roadmap for meeting our carbon reduction targets! How will we work together to make it happen? Previous Zero Carbon Britain research has shown that we can meet this challenge using technology available today. So what’s stopping us?
The Centre for Alternative Technology’s (CAT) latest research project, Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen, explores the economic, cultural and psychological barriers to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions, and sets out the positive, connected approach we need to overcome them.
It offers a ‘toolbox’ of ideas that can help inspire, inform and enable us to make change happen, bringing together thinking from researchers in psychology, sociology, political science, economics and other social sciences, as well as faith and spiritual practice, arts and culture.
Paul Allen, lead author, CAT researcher and campaigner will share report findings and case studies and consider with us how they might be relevant here.
We invite thinkers & campaigners, community and voluntary sector groups, as well as academics, professionals and students from the fields mentioned above to hear the report findings and share your expertise and ideas on how to make it happen in Cambridge and Cambridgeshire.
Key findings from the discussion groups will be captured and shared with the new Mayor, City Council, local universities and community groups.
