IPCC report released: Mitigation of climate change

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Working Group III released a report on 4th April. The Working Group III report is the third instalment of the IPCC’s Sixth Assessment Report (AR6), which will be completed this year.

The Working Group III report provides an updated global assessment of climate change mitigation progress and pledges, and examines the sources of global emissions.  It explains developments in emission reduction and mitigation efforts, assessing the impact of national climate pledges in relation to long-term emissions goals. It finds:

  • We have options in all sectors to at least halve emissions by 2030
  • The next few years are critical
  • Need to close investment gaps
  • Climate action is key to achieving the sustainable development goals

In the Air: Exhibition at Wellcome Collection from 19 May  

Welcome Collection are holding a free exhibition from 19 May to 16 October. In the Air explores our relationship with the air around us. 

The exhibition will explore the relationship between the air and earth, from 3.5-billion-year-old fossilised bacteria that first introduced oxygen into the atmosphere to delicate porcelain sculptures of the glaciers that provide a record of the air and our impact on it.

It charts the history of activism against pollution from 17th century accounts of coal smoke in London to contemporary protests against levels of toxic air that disproportionately impact communities.

Celebrating Climate Action Case Study: Energy Garden

Energy Garden supports communities to install and maintain gardens on railway stations across London. The community-owned renewable energy generates revenue to fund the gardens and education programmes.

They are tackling the climate crisis through: 

  • Supporting local communities to install green walls, grow food, plant hedges as air quality buffers and establish wildlife habitats that increase urban biodiversity. 
  • Supporting local communities to install off-grid solar systems and power amenities such as water pumps, fairy lights and phone chargers. 
They have 28 energy gardens so far with the aim to create community infrastructure that brings inspiration, cohesion and examples of what solutions can look like.
