Join us and the Priestley International Centre for Climate to meet some of the University of Leeds researchers who are driving progress towards achieving local, national and global net-zero emissions targets.
All webinars will run from 18:00 - 19:00 and include a 30 minute Q&A session.

'Capturing carbon through UK woodlands' with Dr Cat Scott and Professor Stuart Taberner
Tree planting and landscape restoration are widely recognised as being part of society’s response to mitigating climate change. However, creating and restoring forests is far from simple. Hear how researchers are exploring the ability of new and existing woodlands to help achieve net-zero emissions.
Tuesday 16 March
'Driving down transport emissions' with Professor Greg Marsden and Professor Jillian Anable
Transport is responsible for over a quarter of global CO2 emissions and these emissions have been rising. This webinar will set out what needs to be done to ensure we go from zero progress to zero emissions in the next three decades.
Thursday 18 March
'Using carbon capture to clean up industry' with Professor Chris Rayner and Dr Rachael Spraggs
Carbon Capture and Storage (CSS) is essential if we are to reach net-zero CO2 emissions and avoid catastrophic climate change. In this webinar, discover a fundamentally new approach for separating CO2 out of the emissions of large-scale point source emitters such as power stations and from industrial processes.
Tuesday 23 March
'Community funding for the climate crisis' with Dr Mark Davis and Professor Iain Clacher
Local authorities are on the front line of a just transition to net-zero. With normal borrowing channels hit hard by regulatory changes and COVID-19, alternative sources of funding are needed now. In this talk, learn about the research and plans to help move money for people and planet.
