22nd May 2019
17:30 to 18:30

The IPCC suggest that the future of the world is dependent on a technological solution that does not yet exist. Join our panel of leading experts to learn what the UK can do to protect this future.

This event is being jointly hosted by the All-Party Parliamentary Group for Future Generations and the All-Party Parliamentary Climate Change Group. To register please go to this Eventbrite page.

This event will be chaired by Lord Martin Rees and will bring together prominent speakers in this field to discuss the role of negative emissions technologies in combating climate change, including:

  • Charlotte Morgan, Chair of the Carbon Capture Use and Storage Cost Taskforce
  • Dr David Reiner, Senior Lecture in Technology Policy at the University of Cambridge
  • Dr Naomi Vaughan, Senior Research Associate at the University of East Anglia

They will discuss: 

  • What are negative emissions technologies?
  • How reliant can we be on these technologies?
  • Could developing these technologies be the most important step towards tackling climate change?
  • What role can the UK play in developing negative emissions technology and how should this subject effect the UK’s environment plans?

Presentations from the panel will be followed by a Q&A session with the audience.
