Event Details



The 21st Conference of Parties summit (COP21) took place at the end of 2015. Heads of states agreed in general to spell the end for coal and other fossil fuels before 2050 hoping to prevent a climatic catastrophe caused by Global Warming. As we switch to renewable energy, we are also entering the zero-carbon era.

While fossil fuel industry revenues some trillion a year, will the state leaders support an agreement that hampers their ability to develop and profit? Renewable energy currently contributes a mere 2% to the global energy supply. Are we likely to be able to increase this percentage 50 times in around 30 years? The fate of the world hangs in the balance, depending on our responses to these questions. How can we rise up to this defining challenge of the 21st century?
