The Zero Carbon Expo is a free public meeting to discuss the most effective means of reducing our emissions. There will be information on solar, batteries, EVs and the range of options available to all of us to work for the Zero Carbon future.

Organized by Climate Future, the keynote speaker will be Dr. Liam Phelan, a multidisciplinary scientist at Newcastle University. Liam has expertise in how the Earth system is a complex adaptive system comprising human-social and ecological elements. He has studied its key characteristics, including thresholds, non-linear change, and capacity for surprise. He will speak on the need for urgent cuts to emissions.

Tom Hunt will also be speaking. Tom and his friend Simon Leslie are the “Sail for Sanity” team. They will be sailing by kayak from Port Kembla to Newcastle over 3 weeks, to raise awareness of the need for urgent action, aiming to arrive in Newcastle before the big event in the harbour on the 24th. During the evening, Tom will talk about their trip so far and on EVs.

Subjects for discussion include the best options for emissions reductons (including reduction targets), solar installations, the smart grid power system at the Ecovillage (which includes a community battery) and the influence of the media on the climate crisis.

Finally, there will be a panel session for questions after the presentations.
