Yesterday I had the pleasure of hosting a Catalyse Change Masterclass with a group of young women who are interested in pursuing careers in sustainability and are committed to taking meaningful Climate Action. We used the En-ROADS simulator to explore which climate solutions would have the most impact on global greenhouse gas emissions and limit warming as much as possible.
Together we created a scenario that could limit warming to +1.7degC above pre-industrial levels. The discussion was wide ranging, considering not just the impacts on warming but also the equity issues and potential co-benefits associated with some of the solutions.
The group shared reflections on what they had seen, how it made them feel and what local actions they could take on their path to Net-Zero. We all felt a renewed sense of hope that if we act together we can create a better future for our planet.
