Runaway rates of change now threaten us all. GHG emissions need to be cut to zero globally as quickly as possible to avoid being tipped into the catastrophe that follows if we don’t. Can we harmonise an inclusive & sufficient response? In this webinar, Aubrey Meyer will give his insights into what governments, businesses, and individuals must do, in order to avoid the impending climate catastrophe.


Aubrey Meyer is a violinist. Now in his 75th year, he established the ‘Well-Tempered Climate Accord’ 25 years ago. Otherwise known as contraction & convergence, this ‘famous proposal’ remains widely known, well supported, & ‘inevitably required’ to achieve the aims & principles of the UNFCCC. UNFCCC-Compliance raises the 'numeraire-question' (what is 'the unit of measurement'). "Are we simply trying to extend our monetary world into what is really a musical universe?"
