Mission 2020: Will it be a Climate Turning Point?

Thu 1 November, 7.30pm
Running Time: 1 hour

COP24 (24th Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change) takes place in Poland in November 2018. This talk explores how COP24 will pave the way for Mission 2020, a package of binding legislation to ensure the EU meets its climate and energy targets for the year 2020 and where the UK fits in post Brexit. Mission 2020 sets three key targets: 20% cut in greenhouse gas emissions (from 1990 levels), 20% of EU energy from renewable sources and 20% improvement in energy efficiency. Speakers will also explore what a turning point might mean after 2020 for us all.

Chaired by Alison Tickell, Founder and CEO Julies Bicycle, with contributions from Joanna Haigh, Co-Director, Grantham Institute for Climate Change & Environment and Rob Bailey, Research Director, Chatham House.

This event is part of Season for Change, a UK-wide programme of cultural responses celebrating the environment and inspiring urgent action on climate change. seasonforchange.co.uk
