Livestream from the Queen`s Lecture by Dr Emily Shuckburgh.
Dr. Emily Shuckburgh, Director of Cambridge Zero, the University of Cambridge’s climate change initiative, and Reader in Environmental Data Science at the Department of Computer Science and Technology held the Queen’s Lecture „A blue print for a green future“.
It was the first digital event in 55 years. „A blue print for a green future“ Today we sit at a pivotal moment in history. The toll that COVID-19 has wreaked on humanity is immense. But as we look to how the world can emerge from the pandemic stronger and more resilient, we must face head-on the triple challenge of responding to the threats posed by growing social inequality, the destruction of nature and climate change.
She argued that this is the moment to reset our priorities, to re-evaluate our relationships with each other and with the world that sustains us, and to imagine and then realise a future that is, simply, better.
