On 6th July we are holding the next event in our series of talks. Paul Bodnar, Managing Director of the Rocky Mountain Institute and former director for energy and climate change in the White House, will give a talk on “the Cotton Candy Approach” to climate action – how you make something from nothing. Topics will include the making of the Paris Agreement and how the people of the US are now making Paris happen without Donald Trump.
There are limited spaces so please contact us if you are interested in attending.
