The theme of International Repair Day 2021 is “Repair Lowers Carbon Emissions.” The theme resonates in the year of COP26 and also, following the alarming IPCC report on climate that was recently released.
In the lead up to the day, we’re hosting a webinar to explore carbon emissions - how and when they are produced and how we can minimise them. We will also focus on understanding national level emissions, but not just the emissions that happen in the UK or in Europe. In international negotiations, our consumption emissions are counted on other countries’ balance sheets. We’ll look at consumption emissions at scale, and explore the role of Right to Repair and other measures for longer-lasting products in reducing our emissions.
Join us for a short presentation and a Q&A on the topic, hosted by @Chloe from Right to Repair Europe and @ugo from Restart, with our guest Professor of Energy and Climate Policy, John Barrett from The Sustainability Research Institute at the University of Leeds. Barrett is also a member of the Academic Panel for Climate Assembly UK, we are very pleased to have him share his expertise with us for this event. There will be time to answer questions from the audience too.
We previously held part 1 of this series on the topic of the hidden carbon impact of making our electronics. You can watch it here.
