Launch of 1.5-Degree Lifestyles: Towards a Fair Consumption Space for All

October 5, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm UTC+2

Changes in predominant lifestyles, especially in high-consuming societies, will determine whether we meet commitments in the Paris Agreement and avoid dire consequences of climate change, as warned by the IPCC. And yet… 

…In a world with a limited and fast-shrinking global carbon budget, coupled with vast inequalities, how do we allocate the remaining carbon allowance in a manner that is fair while drastically decreasing our footprints within a limited timeframe to avoid irreversible ecological damage? 

This event launched the new report, 1.5-Degree Lifestyles: Towards a Fair Consumption Space for All, which addresses this question head on. It builds on the first 1.5-Degree Lifestyles report that established quantifiable global targets for lifestyles carbon footprints; the new report expands the scope to make it more applicable to policy design, and practical program implementers.
