Shake up the System: How do we achieve meaningful change in society for a fair climate future

Together for a Fair Climate Future  Online Conference

21-22 September 2021   2.00 - 5.00       online

Shake up the System will be a virtual conference, exploring how behavioural, societal, and cultural changes can link to achieve meaningful systems change in the UK to address the climate crisis and develop a fairer society. The conference will bring together learning and experience from across sectors – identifying common barriers and enablers to help all actors move forward in their work.

Academics, activists, artists, communicators, community groups, companies, policy makers, regulators and others will share their insights and experiences of how change happens at these different levels, how social movements develop, and their ideas for the systems changes needed for a fair climate future. The conference will highlight major areas of focus for the UK in the lead up to the UN International Climate Conference COP26 in November 2021.

The virtual conference will take an interactive format and participants will be encouraged to share ideas and examples from their own work and collaborate with other participants from across sectors to problem solve and work together to identify actions for enabling change.

The conference will take place over the course of two afternoons (14:00 – 17:00 BST) on 21 – 22 September 2021. Participants are strongly encouraged to join for both sessions, as presentations, workshops, and activities will build on each other, culminating in learnings, actions, and commitments for the future at the end of day two.
