Event Description 

The potential impacts of climate change and the correlated rise in the occurrence and severity of extreme weather present both challenges and opportunities for creative thought across almost all occupations and enterprises. Whether in the public, private or non-profit sector, the future workforce will be confronted by the imperative to react to a changing planet by developing new modes of energy generation and consumption, new manufacturing technologies and new patterns of land use and agriculture, all without denying future generations the ability to sustain socially equitable livelihoods. 

Every enterprise will need to understand the risks posed by climate change, as well as the possibilities for developing a response. The political, social and financial capital of the next generations may provide the conditions necessary for government action as well as the motivation for environmental entrepreneurs to focus on the particular enterprise investments necessary for the transition to a “decarbonized” society.
