The Sussex Energy Group (SEG) Keynote Lecture 2023 will be given by Chris Stark on Wednesday 8 November from 5:30pm-7:00pm (GMT) at the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts on the University of Sussex Campus.
Chris Stark is the Chief Executive of the UK Climate Change Committee (CCC), the independent authority on tackling climate change under the UK’s Climate Change Act. Chris leads a team of analysts and specialists, offering expert insight into the challenges of reducing UK emissions and adapting to the changing climate.
Chris led the CCC’s work to recommend a ‘Net Zero’ target for the UK – and has since directed detailed analysis and advice on the UK’s path to carbon neutrality. He speaks regularly on the transition to a zero-carbon economy and the need to confront climate change with urgency.
The lecture will be held on campus followed by a drinks reception. A recording will be available after the event.
