About the Event
A radical shift towards a green and sustainable economy is needed to address the global climate and ecological crises.
This conference will look at the urgency and scale required to mobilise climate action and how we can deliver an alternative energy system.
Furthermore, we will explore how we can ensure a just transition that is fair to everyone in society, and the technologies we need to change our energy system.
