UTS Big Thinking Forum: Saving the Climate
What does a truly sustainable Australia look like? Are we on the right track?
From Australia to Zambia, countries around the world have decarbonised their economies. We drive electric and hydrogen-powered cars. Homes and businesses are powered by the sun, wind and other renewable sources. Forests have been restored and play a major role in removing carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.
Runaway climate change that threatened every person on Earth has been avoided.
So, how did we do it?
New UTS-led research for the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation offers a roadmap for meeting – and surpassing – the targets set by the Paris Climate Agreement, showing that we can solve the global climate crisis with currently available technologies and natural climate solutions.
Join leading thinkers from industry, government and academia for an inspiring yet urgent discussion about the ambitious journey in front of us towards a safe and prosperous planet – and what solving climate change in one generation means for our everyday lives.
