Geoengineering: in case of emergency, break glass

 
  6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Coronavirus: Events may be cancelled and venues closed at short notice, you are advised to check on their websites before making a trip.

EngTalks shine a light on the big engineering and technology topics of today. They are delivered by inspirational individuals passionate about influencing and informing their peers and the next generation of engineers. You can find out more on our EngTalks webpage.

This December our next EngTalk debates the critical topic of Geoengineering. Planet earth is facing an imminent climate emergency, a future of unprecedented life-changing events that need urgent solutions. In the wake of this crisis, what options do we have?

Geoengineering is the large-scale intervention of the earth’s climate systems with the aim to counteract climate change, could this solution reverse large-scale greenhouse-gas production? If so what are the proposed techniques and are they even safe to test?

Join the debate on 7 December when we welcome Rupert Read, academic, Green Party campaigner and spokesperson for Extinction Rebellion on the EngTalk stage alongside, Tim Kruger, who manages the Oxford Geoengineering Programme (OGP), at the University of Oxford.

This EngTalk will see Rupert, Tim and the audience discuss all angles of a debate that affects both humanity and the future of our planet.

Cost: Free of Charge
