From Laggard to Leader - How Australia Can Lead the World to Zero Carbon
Find out about this new plan at an event not to be missed. The Plan will be outlined by report co-author Fergus Green who will then participate in a panel discussion with guest speakers Professor Stuart White (Director, Institute for Sustainable Futures) and one other (TBC).
“We shouldn’t act before the rest of the world.”
“Our actions won’t make a difference, anyway.”
Claims such as the above have come to define Australia's climate change debate.
Beyond Zero Emissions is challenging these excuses for inaction with a new report that makes the case for Australian leadership on climate change. The report:
* highlights the true extent of Australia’s influence over global emissions
* demonstrates how the practical, problem-solving approach to sectoral decarbonisation advocated in the BZE Zero Carbon Australia Plans can be leveraged by Australia to achieve major emissions reductions globally while the UN negotiations remain deadlocked
* outlines a series of domestic and foreign policy initiatives that Australia should implement to steer the world’s trajectory towards a truly clean energy future.
When: Tuesday, July 24, 2012 (6.30-8.00pm)
Where: Building 4, Level 2, Room 34, University of Technology Sydney (corner Thomas and Harris Streets - access off Harris Street), Ultimo
