Mark Maslin, climatologist, University College London
Climate change is the most critical issue facing the world in the 21st century. Everyone agrees we must keep global warming to under 2˚C or under 1.5˚C if possible. But how can we do this while dealing with the other great challenges of our age: pandemics, poverty, security, population growth and environmental degradation? Climate change seems too big to deal with but Mark Maslin shows us how we can rebuild the global economy after covid-19 saving our planet from climate change while improving everyone’s lives.
Mark’s captivating lecture is followed by a Q&A where participants of the live event were able to ask him questions about the challenges outlined in his talk.
