The inter-university debate: Is there a role for offsetting in Higher Education?

30th May 2024 15:00 – 16:30

Join KCL for the second in a series of thought-provoking debates on the role of offsetting in Higher Education. Amidst the urgent call for achieving global net zero emissions, the question of how we navigate this journey sparks controversy among critics and proponents.

During this event, we will delve into whether offsetting is the right approach for universities, which also make significant contributions through research and education. As we navigate the nuances of offsetting, we will address critical questions, including the moral implications of offsetting and the necessity of prioritising emissions reduction.

The debate aims to engage the King’s community in a dialogue surrounding offsetting. With a focus on exploring and connecting relevant research, fostering academic debate, and informing future policy, we seek to highlight the complexities of offsetting within the academic sphere.
