ZCBlog: Discussing a zero carbon future

The new ZCB report will layout a scenario for an emissions free 2030 but one of the wider project aims is to raise awareness for a more carbon responsible society. Because of this, the new report will include a series of discussion papers about how ZCB relates to wider topics.

The third ZCB report will focus on a number of specific areas for a 2030 scenario. However, the team would like to discuss how ZCB could relate to other subjects. The ZCB project is looking for contributors who want to use the ZCB scenario to highlight how reducing carbon emissions will affect the UK. These discussion papers should tackle themes and issues that are outside of ZCB’s core research.

Sure, the ZCB team have researched how to eliminate carbon emissions in energy production and land-use but how will the scenario affect less quantifiable subjects. For instance, how would the ZCB scenario affect wellbeing? Could it create or diminish green spaces for recreation?

Each “ZCB and…” discussion paper should be no more than 1,000 words but preferably be between 600 and 800. If you wish to be involved then let us know! You can get in touch here.

Not sure what subject to tackle? ZCBlog will be featuring news articles next week that reflect what is happening in relation to decarbonising the UK.
