Join our speakers as they contemplate a 3 degree global temperature rise, and hear their vision for our world in the year 2100.
Alarmingly, current policies and commitments by the worlds major emitters will still result in a temperature rise of approximately 3 degrees by the end of this century.
So what does a 3 degree future mean for ourselves, our families, our communities, our infrastructure, our social and political systems?
