Event Details

What happens if clean energy deploys too slowly to prevent significant climate change? A growing group of carbon negative technologies offer the potential remove greenhouse gases from the atmosphere and reverse the primary drivers of climate change. Come learn about the opportunities and challenges for these carbon negative technologies from a renowned group of academics and business leaders!

At this BERCshop, Ken Caldeira will deliver a keynote address on the science behind atmospheric carbon removal. Following the keynote, Jane Long will moderate a panel discussion with representatives from Cool Planet, the Savory Institute, NewLight Technologies, and Carbon Engineering on strategies and challenges to scaling carbon negative solutions. 

Light appetizers and drinks will be served, thanks to the support of our sponsors BERC and the Virgin Earth Challenge!
