Open briefing: The IPCC’s 6th Assessment Report


This year, floods, wildfires and extreme heat have caused havoc across the world. The impacts of the climate crisis have become clearer to all of us. It is in this context that, on Monday 9 August, the latest Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) update will be published, involving scientists from across the world and revealing how greenhouse gas emissions are changing our planet.

The Assessment Report 6 (AR6) of the IPCC is likely to sound the alarm on how little time we have left to limit the most catastrophic consequences and put pressure on world leaders to act now.

To help understand what AR6 means, particularly ahead of the COP26 global climate summit in Glasgow later this year, Green Alliance has teamed up with The Climate Coalition to host this event for campaigners, journalists, politicians and businesses.

We will hear from a climate scientist on the findings of the report, as well as from political strategists and campaigners on the outlook and what it means for climate action in the final countdown to the UN climate summit in November.

Speakers: 
  • Professor Simon Lewis, global change science, University College London
  • Rebecca Newsom, head of politics, Greenpeace UK
  • Natasha Yorke-Edgell, head of movement building, The Climate Coalition
  • Richard Black, senior associate, Energy & Climate Intelligence Unit
