Over half of the carbon in the earth’s atmosphere emitted by the burning of fossil fuels has been produced since 1989. Our ever-growing hunger for energy to heat us, cool us, move us and produce our goods and homes has precipitated the current climate and ecological crises.

So what, in a sustainable, one-planet world, does the future of energy look like? From where will we be getting our energy in thirty years time? How will we travel and if we do, how far will we go? Will our homes and offices continue to be energy drains, or will they become clean energy producers? Will we have reached net zero, and if so, how did we do it? And perhaps most importantly, will our creativity and innovations have ensured the world’s remaining stocks of fossil fuels have been kept in the ground, or will they continue to have been burnt as carelessly as they have been for the last thirty years? We’ll explore these questions and more in this vibrant discussion, the fifth event in our Everything Change programme, running online from 10-19 June 2021.

Booking is essential to access this free, online event. Live English-language captioning will be available.
