Event Description

Description

Student strikes have inspired a generation of new activists and pushed the climate emergency to the top of the political agenda.

The latest UN report on the climate emergency said:

  • Without urgent action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to zero carbon there will be dangerous temperature rises above 4 degrees by 2100 - in the lifetime of young people alive today.
  • 1 degree rise above pre-industrial levels has already led to an increase in fires, hurricanes, floods and droughts
  • The transition to a zero-carbon society to keep below a 1.5 degree increase is the most urgent problem facing humanity and is technically feasible
  • The obstacles are entirely political

This one day conference is aimed at workers and students from across the world of education to discuss, in plenaries and workshops, how we can work together to bring about the change we so desperately need.
