Invitation to attend the launch of

How Australia can thrive in a low carbon world:

Pathways to prosperity in 2050

with economist Jeff Sachs


ClimateWorks and our partners are pleased to welcome Jeffrey D. Sachs, world-renowned economist and leader in sustainable development, to launch How Australia can thrive in a low carbon world: Pathways to prosperity in 2050. The initiative is Australia’s response to the Sustainable Development Solutions Network’s (SDSN) Deep Decarbonisation Pathways Project.

Professor Sachs is a bestselling author, syndicated columnist and has twice been named among Time Magazine‘s 100 most influential world leaders. He is Special Advisor to United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and Director of the SDSN. Professor Sachs also serves as the Director of The Earth Institute, Professor of Sustainable Development, and Professor of Health Policy and Management at Columbia University.

At this event, Professor Sachs will be exploring strategies for deep decarbonisation of the Global Energy System. He will be followed by a presentation from the ClimateWorks team addressing what this may mean for Australia, specifically:

 

  • What are the key challenges and uncertainties?
  • What are the opportunities?
  • What might a prosperous, low carbon economy look like?

 

Following the presentation there will be the opportunity for questions from the audience.
