You and the planet: Tomorrow’s Earth (The Royal Society)

What is your vision for Tomorrow’s Earth?
Whether you imagine flying cars, robot companions or materials that think for themselves, we can all agree that the future of our planet depends on our ability to tackle the climate crisis.

Across the world, scientists have developed potential solutions to the crisis, from renewable energy, and sustainable agriculture to biodegradable plastics and net-zero computing but the innovation alone isn’t enough. Climate change is a global challenge that will need scientists, policy makers, individuals, industry and more to come together to take action.

So how do we make sure all voices are heard and who will take responsibility to ensure everyone does their part in the fight against climate change and biodiversity loss?

This event will be hosted by Justin Rowlatt, Climate Editor at the BBC, who will be joined by:

• Professor David J Beerling FRS, founder and Director of the Leverhulme Centre for Climate Change Mitigation
• Dr Miatta Fahnbulleh, Chief Executive of the New Economics Foundation
• Professor Jim Hall FREng, Professor of Climate and Environmental Risks in the University of Oxford and Director of Research in the School of Geography and the Environment
• Vanessa Nakate, climate activist from Uganda and founder of the Africa-based Rise Up Movement
