Transitioning to a low emission future
Date:27 February 2018, 6:00pm - 27 February 2018, 8:00pm
Achieving a successful transition to a low emission future for energy and transport An effective transition to a low emission New Zealand requires a transformation of our transportation and energy systems as well as a shift in the behaviours of the many actors that interact with these systems. Join us to hear from Simon Corbell as we look to understand the role that policy plays in accelerating decarbonisation. We will explore how policy can be used to influence behavioural change across all aspects of our society, and examine the role local and central government has in planning and providing for low-emission transport and energy systems.
