Masterclass on Net Zero for Public Servants

Event date: March 9, 2022

In partnership with the Smith School of Enterprise and the Environment (SSEE) and Apolitical.

Wednesday, 9 March 2022, 16:00 PM – 17:00 PM (Online)


Time is short, stakes are high, and resources are limited. This is the challenge faced by almost every public servant working on climate policy. Given this, can we create climate policy with exponential, rather than incremental impact?

Attend this free online masterclass to hear from leading experts at the University of Oxford, the Climate Change Committee and government about how you can achieve meaningful impact from climate policy.

WHO SHOULD JOIN THE MASTERCLASS:

The event has especially been designed for public servants leading climate policy design or implementation across any part of government.

This masterclass delves into some of the content from a new certified University of Oxford and Apolitical course, Reaching Net Zero for Public Servants, launching on 22nd April 2022.

SPEAKERS:

  • Chris Stark, Chief Executive, Climate Change Committee
  • Sam Fankhauser, Professor of Climate Economics, University of Oxford
  • Kaya Axelsson, Net Zero Policy Engagement Fellow, University of Oxford
