Chris King reports on GeoWeek 2021, which looked at what net zero by 2050 may mean for our regions
Geoweek 2021 launched in May with a virtual talk from the British Geological Survey’s Director, Karen Hanghøj, followed by a panel discussion. Then, in groups of six or less, or via self-guided tours, our GeoWeek leaders arranged for members of the public to attend field trips that promoted discussion of the impacts that the UK Government’s targets of achieving net-zero carbon emissions by 2050 might have on local areas.
A series of information and activity sheets on topics including climate mitigation, land management, blue hydrogen and renewable energy are available at: www.earthlearningidea.com
