Post Carbon Pathways: Learning from the most innovative and promising post carbon economy transition plans and strategies

Professor John Wiseman is Professorial Fellow, Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute (MSSI) at The University of Melbourne.

Professor Wiseman has recently returned to Australia following a period of travel meeting with and interviewing a wide range of leading researchers, policy makers and activists working on post carbon economy transition plans and strategies. This work is part of the broader Post Carbon Pathways project being undertaken with MSSI Research Fellow Taegen Edwards and Dr Kate Luckins. Professor Wiseman will share the key outcomes and learnings from this work.

The Post Carbon Pathways project aims to show that  transformational changes required to rapidly reduce greenhouse gas emissions depend on broad recognition that alternative, more desirable futures and pathways are indeed possible. Post Carbon Pathways project aims to strengthen understanding of the actions needed to create rapid, large-scale transitions to a just and sustainable post carbon future.
