Advancing 1.5°C Societies

Invitation Only

We are familiar with positive visualizations of towns and cities powered by green energy and reduced car use, but climate campaigns are over-optimistic about what equitable living might look like in terms of shifts in consumption for the world’s relatively wealthy. It means radical reductions in material consumption, but what might we be gaining? Are we all truly on board for the recalibration of consumption this implies? 

We are in uncharted territory in terms of the types of policies and sheer scale of social change required. Building on the first two collaborative and interactive events, this convening looks to update the ambitious agenda and framework developed previously, and examine what is needed to take the community of practice forward.
