The geosciences played a key role in the hydrocarbon-fuelled economic boom of the 20th Century, and it is now poised to play an equally-key role in the transition to a green and sustainable economy. This presents a new opportunity for Geoscientists to engage with the social, political and ethical implications of the green economy and their research into green technologies. This panel discussion brings together three experts from fields outside of the geosciences to explore questions such as: how the green transition can facilitate reduced carbon emissions and social justice, whether the green economy will be structurally different to the current economic system, how should we measure activities’ green credentials, and how will societies be convinced of green economics?
