Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen


Home » Info & Resources » Zero Carbon Britain Hub and Innovation Lab » Zero Carbon Britain – Research Reports » Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen

CAT’s previous Zero Carbon Britain research has shown that we can meet the climate challenge using technology available today. So what’s stopping us?

 

Overcoming barriers to change

Zero Carbon Britain: Making it Happen explores the economic, cultural and psychological barriers to achieving net zero greenhouse gas emissions, and sets out the positive, connected approach we need to overcome them – joining up research and practice across disciplines, borders, sectors and scales.

The report offers a ‘toolbox’ of ideas that can help inspire, inform and enable us to make change happen.

Working across disciplines, sectors and scales

Working within an interdisciplinary framework, the report brings together thinking from researchers working in psychology, sociology, political science, economics and other social sciences, as well as faith and spiritual practice, arts and culture.

Drawing on a wide range of peer-reviewed journals, books, reports and articles, as well as stories from real-life projects, it explores ways that we can overcome barriers in innovative ways.
