Decarbonising our planet
Environment & Science ▼European Union
Climate change is the most significant challenge facing our global community, and we must find a way to decarbonise our planet. In the wake of the Paris Agreement, we explored the emerging map of Europe for action on climate change, energy transition and pollution from grassroots action to systemic solutions. We learned how legal and policy solutions, climate finance and grassroots action are catalysing change at a crucial time for our planet.
Speaker: Karla Hill is Director of Programmes for Client Earth, Europe’s leading environmental law NGO, and the UK’s ‘most effective environmental organisation’ according to a new study by the Environmental Funders Network.
Client Earth holds regular breakfast briefings at 41 Portland Place involving panels of lawyers exploring approaches to environmental challenges such as the environmental impacts of Brexit, access to justice, and working with forested communities in Africa.
