Continuing our collaboration with University of Sussex, we bring you events as part of ESRC Festival of Social Science

The ESRC Festival of Social Science is an annual, UK-wide, free celebration of the social sciences.

The 2021 Festival will run 1-30 November, with a number of events themed around social science and the environment, to reflect the COP26 climate change conference taking place 31 October-12 November.


Following on from our work with the University of Sussex, always possible has been asked to support two online events as part of the festival.

Towards a Fossil Fuel Treaty – Nov 1st 1-2pm

Join Peter Newell and Andrew Simms for a 30 minute conversation followed by 30 minutes of questions and answers.

This event is a public conversation about research, impact and policy on climate change. It focuses on the proposal for a fossil treaty to fairly leave a large proportion of remaining fossil fuels in the ground. Remarkably, the Paris Agreement on climate change does not even mention fossil fuels, despite being the main drivers of climate change. This needs to change and in this event we discuss how research and advocacy have come together around calls for a Fossil Fuel Non-Proliferation Treaty.

How can research on climate policy and energy transitions interface with campaigning in the run up to and beyond COP26?

Speakers

Peter Newell, Professor of International Relations in the School of Global Studies, University of Sussex

Andrew Simms, author, activist and co-director of the New Weather Institute and co-founder of the Rapid Transition Alliance (a member based network of over 100 civil society organisations from around the world)


always possible has designed and delivered hundreds of memorable small and large scale events.
