    A Net Zero University: Student Summit

    This event has passed Get tickets

    Event description

    In early 2022, Northern Ireland set a target of net zero carbon emissions by 2050 in the Climate Change Bill. As a University, we want to help lead the way and demonstrate what is possible. 

    This is not a simple journey, but it is necessary and urgent.

    We're preparing to develop a strategy to enable us to achieve these ambitions – to create a pathway and action plan to take us to net zero, and a plan for adapting to the impacts of climate change. To make sure this strategy is ambitious, credible and something everyone can get behind, the University has today launched a staff and student survey and engagement campaign to ask our staff and students for their views, priorities, concerns and ideas for action.

    The Student Summit will take place on Monday 30 January, 5pm within One Elmwood (The Cube).

    Chaired by Cate Conway, BBC Radio Ulster Presenter, panel guests include:

    • Chloe Ferguson, National Union of Students (NUS) President and former Full-Time Officer (Student Officer Campaigns and Engagement) in Queen’s Students’ Union
    • Alix McDaid, PhD Student, Co-Founder of Endangered Ireland
    • Sara Lynch, Head of Sustainability, s.lynch@qub.ac.uk
    • Joe Ireland, PhD Student, jireland02@qub.ac.uk
    • Richard McLernon, Belfast City Council Climate Commission

      Come along to hear your peers talk about priorities for climate action, ask your questions and share your views. 

      We anticipate a high demand for this event. If you have booked a ticket and are no longer able to attend, we would be very grateful if you could make contact with us to let us know as soon as possible, so that we can release your ticket to someone else who may be on our waiting list. Please note that tickets are strictly limited to one ticket per student.
