Towards a Net-Zero University | How to change an institution

Towards a Net-Zero University | How to change an institution

Ruth Bookbinder, a PhD researcher at the University of Leeds, in the UK, talks to Professor Anna Mdee and Dr Katy Roelich about their research studying the University of Leeds’ transition to net-zero carbon emissions by 2030. Their project aims to create a theory of change that can also help other institutions respond to the climate crisis. They discuss some of their key findings, including the barriers and opportunities to changing complex institutions - at the University of Leeds and beyond.
