What science areas should be a priority to allow government to deliver emission reductions? How will fisheries, fisheries advice and fishery science change in a carbon-neutral world? How can we reduce our own carbon footprint? Join the discussion in this network session.
Inspired by the growing cries from young climate crisis activists, and noting that net-zero emission legislation is growing in frequency across Europe and globally, this session aims to stimulate a debate as to how ICES and marine science might respond.
The debate will focus on two areas:
1) What science areas ICES and marine science should focus on in order to help society move towards zero-net emissions, e.g.:
2) How we can reduce our own carbon footprint, e.g.
We hope the session will result in a summary report (or paper) to help inform ICES strategic leadership.
We wish to encourage participation from remote attendees as well as in person – although this will rely on the IT infrastructure available.
