Parallel Session: A change of course: Radical emission reduction pathways to stay under 1.5°C

11:00 - 12:30

Climate change is not an engineering problem. There are many viable alternatives to bring our societies on a pathway towards 1.5°C without relying on geoengineering. A technofix mentality and powerful vested interests prevent us from implementing them. This session will explore how we can change course for a climate-just future.
