How can cities help us achieve a +1.5C world?

The Pentland Centre for Sustainability in Business is hosting a series of summer webinars focusing on resilience, the first of which will explore how cities can help us achieve a +1.5C world.

Expert panelists drawn from a diverse range of sectors, including the Mayor’s Office, ICLEI and the World Business Council Sustainable Development, will provide a different perspective on how cities can help us move towards a low carbon future.

We would like the event to be as participative as possible so we will be putting your questions to the expert panelists. To do so, simply type your question in the comment box below.
