Institutions from across the higher education sector are declaring a climate emergency. But what does this mean in practical terms?

We know that there’s a scientific consensus that global warming must be limited to well below 2°C and ideally to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. But how can you relate this global objective to the action that your institution should take?

This session looked at how your institution could set carbon targets that align with the Paris Agreement and support a declaration of a climate emergency. 

This session was part of Influence, the EAUC’s 2019 Annual Conference. All resources from the day can be found here.
