The Clean Revolution
The Climate Group introduced a three year campaign in September 2011 calling for a Clean Revolution in the way that we consume energy and resources. This will become increasingly important with rapid population growth- particularly within the middle classes- putting more of a strain on the world we live in.
Addressing this requires a concerted effort to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and make the transformation to a low carbon economy. The Clean Revolution aims to galvanise into action top decision makers across government, business and civil society, in order to achieve this transformational change.

Initially, Mark and I will be having a conversation with each other, introducing the topic and outlining our views. This will then open up to questions from other Twitter followers, which we will both do our best to answer in under 140 characters!
The conversation and Q&A together will not last longer than an hour, so make sure to have a look at what we are doing between 10 and 11 on Tuesday 1 May.
A summary of the key points/ tweets from the debate will be collated, and you will be able to access them through The Climate Group website and here on my website.
