Melbourne Knowledge Week

Spark: decarbonisation

Tackling the hot topic that will keep our future cool.

Join us for this after-dark event, where we explore the race to limit climate change. With the world’s high-carbon economies being replaced by solar and wind, greener construction, electric transportation systems and sustainable agriculture – are we on the verge of a future where our ecosystems will be treasured as the source of all life or rather just providers of economic services?

Date: 7.00pm-9.30pm on Wednesday 11 May. 

Book tickets to Spark: decarbonisation.

Learn about advances in the most significant energy transition of all time with a motivating presentation by Future Crunch, followed by a Q&A with the audience.

Date: 1pm-1.30pm on Wednesday 11 May.
