With advancing climate impacts comes the need to rapidly rethink and retool how we organise and run our societies. In this session we have invited four speakers with a wealth of knowledge and real-world experience in the critical space between informing democracy, development of pragmatic solutions, and the policy challenges associated with making society actually work in a just and equitable way.
Speakers:
Dr Natalie Jones

Works on how global injustice and inequality can potentially contribute to existential risk, with a particular interest in climate change. Her background is in international law and climate policy.

Sir Tim Smit

Tim conceived of and is co-founded the Eden project in Cornwall in 2001. Since then the Eden Project has played a leading role in developing new ways of seeing and existing in the world with sister projects in China and Australia. Recently Eden has been developing its deep geothermal energy project as a means to power the project and the local community of several thousand homes. Tim has been outspoken about the need for a more rigorous approach to climate.

Susie Townend

Susie heads the secretariat for Scotland’s Climate Assembly. Independent of Government, it brought together an expert-led “mini-Scotland” to learn, deliberate and make recommendations on how Scotland should change to tackle the climate emergency in an effective and fair way. She is a career civil servant with a natural resources background.

Professor Rebecca Willis

Works on environment, climate and energy policy and politics. In particular, she looks at the relationship between the citizen and state in climate governance. In 2019-2020, she was an Expert Lead to Climate Assembly UK, the first national Citizens' Assembly on Climate Change.
