Description

2017 Foresight Series: Creating Climate Safe Cities, presented by World Science Festival Brisbane and Arup.

Arup has entered into a three year partnership with the World Science Festival Brisbane as its proud Innovation Partner. Through our annual Foresight Series, Arup and the World Science Festival Brisbane will be asking some big questions about the world we want to live in – and getting answers.

In 2017, our focus is on how we can create climate ready cities. We are inviting a select group of people to help us shape a better world, and we would like you to be involved.

In order for us to change the trajectory of carbon emissions we must dramatically bend the curve of carbon emissions in the next four years.

We are gathering a group of experts to help us develop a collaborative, achievable road map for significant carbon emissions reductions- creating pathways to a climate safe world. Big change can only be achieved through collaboration and action.

The workshop will be facilitated by Arup’s Global director of Foresight, Research and Innovation Dr Chris Luebkeman. He will be joined by international energy expert Ian Gardner, Global Energy Lead, Arup – key contributor on C40 Deadline 2020: How cities will get the job done.

The outcomes of the workshop will be presented at the World Science Festival Brisbane during On or Off the Grid: Securing Australia’s Energy Future on 24 March 2017.
