Top m&e consultant Arup is calling for the industry to participate in a key online forum discussing climate change.
The forum, which is open to all, is being hosted by New Scientist, with Arup a key partner. The forum is canvassing opinion to help form a report which will be presented to the UN Climate Summit in 2009.
The forum asks for general comments and also for opinions on three key questions:
- Where do we start?
- Looking forward to the good life?
- So what's stopping us?
Jeremy Webb, editor, New Scientist said: “The science is all leading to one question: how do we combat climate change?”
“We want to know what you think about the 'how' and the 'who' of climate change - how can we become a low-carbon society and who should lead the way?
“Innovative ideas for tackling climate change are emerging from academia, government, business, non-governmental organisations, and consumers. We need to choose the right ones and implement them now in a joined-up and well-led approach. By taking part, you'll help us take an important step in that process.”
The forum accompanies a series of events organised by Arup in association with the HSBC Climate Partnership and The Climate Group.
