Tipping Fossil Fuels out of the Global Economy

Date: 9 March 2022

Venue: Zoom

Watch a recording of Simon Sharpe’s University of Exeter talk.


Simon Sharpe is the Director of Economics, UN Climate Action Champions.

He will discuss how evolutionary and complexity economic thinking can guide governments to more effective policy decisions, achieving faster decarbonisation with the same level of political will.

He will also cover how targeted international cooperation can help countries make low carbon transitions more quickly, with less difficulty, at lower cost, and at greater gain.

Simon will draw on experiences of the COP26 campaigns, and insights from the UK-China-India-Brazil collaboration on the Economics of Energy Innovation and System Transition project.
