Event Details

From 30 September – 2 October 2020, an online ‘Net Zero Festival’ will be showcasing a range of ‘solutions’ to the climate emergency. But the phrase ‘net zero’ has opened a door to a host of false solutions that will set us back in the fight for climate justice.


Among other speakers, the Net Zero Festival will give a platform to companies including Shell, Drax and Heathrow Airport.

Far
from tackling the climate crisis, many of these companies have a
history of serious human rights abuses and nature destruction. Others
promote false solutions such as ‘net-zero aviation’ that are simply a
smokescreen for further land grabs and deforestation.

This webinar
series aims to give a brief overview of some of the false solutions
being promoted under the banner of ‘net zero’. This second webinar will
focus on “Green” Flights, Gas, Nuclear & Incineration.


Speakers:

  • Naomi Kreitman, Gastivists Collective
  • David Kureeba, National Association of Professional Environmentalists (NAPE)/Friends of the Earth Uganda
  • Mariel Vilella, Zero Waste Europe
  • Ian Ralls, Friends of the Earth Anti-Nuclear Network
  • Aleathea Warrington, Possible

The webinar will last 90 minutes, with 15 minutes for each topic and 30 minutes for Q&A.Do
come along if you are interested in learning more about false solutions
and the dangers they pose to the fight for climate justice. A recording
will be made available so if you can no longer attend, don’t worry!

Co-organised by UK Youth Climate Coalition and Biofuelwatch.
