Zero Carbon Road Show 2010Cause: 100% Sustainable Energy
December 2: Brussels
September 10: Paris
13: Barcelona

The Road Show presents a range of zero-carbon and sustainable-energy scenarios to researchers,
policy makers and NGOs. The aim is to spur discussion and debate on how greenhouse-gas emissions
could be eliminated completely from a long-industrialised society. It is also intended to reach those
interested in developing such research for their own area, sharing details on approach and methodology.
Among the scenarios presented were: the new Zero-Carbon Britain, and INFORSE-Europe's European
sustainable energy vision.
Gunnar Boye Olesen, Jill Evans MEP, Paul Allen
