Online event series: Oxford net zero: climate in the balance

Date: 18 January 2021, 1:00pm 15 March 2021 - 2:00pm

As the UK prepares to host the next UN climate summit, a wave of businesses, cities and countries are pledging to bring their emissions down to net zero. Oxford scientists were among the first to show that net zero is needed to end global warming. Now, the new Oxford Net Zero initiative is bringing together leading academics from across the University to focus on how it can be achieved.

This series of discussions will showcase the diversity of net zero research at Oxford, and point to the burning questions that need to be answered in the race to halt the climate crisis.
