OxCAN Connect: Implications of IEA’s Net Zero by 2050 report. June Session (Tuesday evening)

Time & Location
01 Jun 2021, 18:30 – 19:30 BST
About The Event
These informal sessions, in the first week of every month, are a chance to get to know each other, share ideas and make connections. Each month we’ll break into groups to discuss a key topic, and will finish with a Q&A for any questions as we get started as a network.
During this session, we’ll deep-dive into the IEA’s landmark “Net Zero by 2050" report. The report outlines a roadmap to achieving the 1.5°C warming target in the Paris agreement, led by a revolution of the electricity system. Please join us for a session where we’ll briefly outline why this report is a dealbreaker and discuss how it can be used to accelerate a concerted effort to achieve significant emissions reductions targets. The Agenda for the meeting:
- 15 mins presentation about key findings of the IEA report
- 35 mins discussions in groups
- 15 mins summary
We encourage you to get acquainted with the report (particularly pages 113-120) prior to the session but please do not feel discouraged to join us without prepping!
Report is avaliable here: https://www.iea.org/reports/net-zero-by-2050
We are running two sessions to cater for different diaries and time zones:
- Tuesday 1st June, 18:30 BST
- Saturday 5th June, 11:00 BST
Please sign up for whichever works best for you. We are really looking forward to meeting you.
