Beyond COP26

The political economy of net zero

The event

The goal of net zero emissions is now enshrined in UK law, and is being adopted by businesses, local councils and other countries. But what will it take to achieve it? What changes will be needed - in how we eat, travel and use energy? And who will bear the cost?

Chaired by University of Sheffield political economist Professor Michael Jacobs, this live panel discussion will bring together four experts from different viewpoints: a government economist; a business leader trying to 'go green'; a trade union leader seeking to protect jobs; and a community activist campaigning for a Green New Deal.

The discussion will be followed by a Q&A with the online audience.
