Transition Now (part II)

Recovering from Covid-19, will responsible science and technology be tools of rapid change?

Part II: Responsible technology and the climate emergency

SGR webinar and AGM


Sectors like energy, transport and defence urgently need to be decarbonised to tackle the climate emergency. Since the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, several industries have engaged in rapid conversion projects to aid health services, build breathing devices and make protective equipment. This has led to a debate around redesigning the economy to be more friendly to people and nature. What are the new opportunities for industrial conversion and how quickly can they be made to happen?

Speakers include:

  • Dr Lucy Gilliam, Transport & Environment
  • Prof Nick Robins, London School of Economics
  • Dr Philip Johnstone, University of Sussex
  • Alice Bell, Possible
  • Dr Stuart Parkinson, Scientists for Global Responsibility

 

SGR's Annual General Meeting will follow the webinar.

 

The webinar will start at 14.00 GMT and will be 90 minutes in length. The AGM will start at 15.45 GMT and will be 60 minutes in length. Registration will open by early October.

More details will be posted on this web-page soon.

 

Part I will focus on Responsible science and the climate emergency
