The challenge of tackling climate change and pressing forward with global economic growth is to be debated at The University of Manchester by leading environmental experts.
Environmental writer and activist George Monbiot will join Stephen Heal, former Director of Climate Change Programmes at Tesco and Professor Andrew Gouldson, Director of the Centre for Climate Change and Economics.
Also on the panel are Professor Bob Watson, DEFRA chief scientist and Professor Kevin Anderson, Director of the Tyndall Centre for Climate Research.
The debate, which will involve an invited audience, will consider whether ‘developed’ nations can continue with economic growth at the same time as effectively tackling climate change.
The event will take place from 4-6pm on Wednesday 23 September at Chancellors Hotel and Conference Centre and will be followed by a drinks reception and buffet.
