Why Net Zero is Not zero: False Solutions

Our speakers will explain how governments and companies use the goal of Net-zero to make things seem nicer than they are. Expert Teresa Anderson from ActionAid International and a guestspeaker show us the do’s and don’ts to keep the Paris Agreement within reach.

What is a Just Transition? Shaping Energy and Food Systems

In an interactive session with Sophie Kwizera and Danny Wijnhoud from ActionAid the Netherlands, the concept of Just Transition will be discussed. Climate transitions in the agriculture sectors could bring benefits to billions of people – but they could also have huge negative socio-economic ramifications if done without prudence. Climate action must ensure that social justice is at the heart of the transition in energy and food systems that support all members of a community, including women, young people and marginalized communities. A just transition means getting it right, from the beginning.
