CREDS is delighted to invite you to their international CREDS in Conversation series: Realistically Radical Policy Options online webinar. This will take place on Wednesday, 7th September, 10h00-11h30 (BST). Further details will be sent to you on registration.

Equitably and quickly distributing the world’s limited and fast-shrinking global carbon budget is one of the critical challenges of our time. This question is addressed by the Hot or Cool Institute’s Towards a Fair Consumption Space for All report in which CREDS researchers participated. This webinar features CREDS researchers and other authors speaking about options that may once have seemed radical but now may be the only alternative to climate catastrophe.

Dr Magnus Bengtsson will introduce the work of the Hot or Cool Institute, its commitment to 1.5°C and give an overview of the report. Prof Yael Parag will talk about Personal Carbon Allowances and whether the time has come for rationing carbon. Dr Yamina Saheb will discuss sufficiency as a policy response, asking ‘how much is enough’.  Dr Stuart Capstick will talk about carbon rationing and the psychology of consumption. The event will end with an opportunity to ask questions of the panel. Please share this event information with your networks.
