Location: The W OR M, 11 Castle Street, Aberdeen, AB11 5BQ
As part of Aberdeen Climate Action Week, Peacock Visual Arts and the James Hutton Institute host a public dialogue exploring the complexities and challenges of energy transition in north-east Scotland. We bring together citizens, academics, policy-makers, oil and gas executives, artists, and community energy pioneers to ponder what a less fossil fuel-dependent north-east might look like – and how to get there.
Do we all mean the same thing by energy transition? What does a move away from fossil fuels imply for our jobs and economy? What is the role of the arts and sciences in bringing about change? How far should energy transition be driven by government? How might greater community participation in energy production affect social and political life? What part should industry play? And what are the costs of failure?
Please join us for an evening of lively conversation to collectively imagine alternative energy futures for and beyond Aberdeen.
Food and refreshments at 6pm, for a 6.30pm start. Free, but booking essential via the button below:
