Event: National Sustainable Living Festival's Great Debate 2018


Do we have the capability to reverse global warming within a meaningful timeframe?

Anna Skarbek, CEO of ClimateWorks Australia, joined a panel of local and international thought leaders as part of the 2018 National Sustainable Living Festival's headline event - The Great Debate.

The debate brought together leading experts in environment, sustainability and climate change to explore the vital role carbon 'drawdown' could play in helping reach a below zero emission world.

Is it now possible to restore climate conditions back to those safe for human civilisation? And what will Australia’s role look like in mounting this historic social, political and technical mobilisation to cool the planet quickly?
