12th D66 Climate Talk with Founder George Marshall

“How do we build the public mandate for strong climate action?”

We request the pleasure of your company for the 12th D66 Climate T
alk by George Marshall. The talk will take place on Wednesday the 26th of October at 19.30 hrs.

George Marshall will argue that broad based public engagement, though consistently overlooked and underfunded, is an essential aspect of climate policy. Drawing on 20 years of experience and a large body of international research and case studies, he argues that the principles of engagement are well understood but they must now be implemented at scale if we are to reach our climate targets.
George Marshall is one of Europe’s leading specialists in climate change communication and is the founder of the Oxford based Climate Outreach. (www.climateoutreach.org) with partners and clients including the World Bank, IPCC, UN, over 20 universities, most major environmental organisations, and 17 governments. George has led large research projects in India, Canada, Australia and across North Africa and is the author of the book ‘Don’t Even Think About It: Why our Brains are Wired to Ignore Climate Change’ about our complex psychological responses to climate change. The Guardian called it “the most important book published on climate change in the past few years” and Esquire magazine rated it one of the 15 all time “essential books” on climate change.

D66 Climate Talks are organised by the Working Group for Climate and Energy and the Delft Working Group for Climate Change Mitigation and Adaptation in association with the TA Duurzaam. This talk will be introduced by Thomas Peutz, chair of the Delft Working Group and followed by a Q&A.
