In this two-day workshop delegates will be taken on a journey to create a vision of a low carbon future in Qatar, identify challenges and barriers and finally develop pathways that overcome the barriers and lead towards a low carbon future in Qatar.
The workshop will use scenario mapping and cutting edge methods to facilitate collaboration and open discussion. All delegates are thought-leaders in their own field, such as carbon management, policymaking, infrastructure design and delivery to name a few.
The workshop will also explore how the carbon reduction, offsetting and management program of the 2022 FIFA World CupTM can be used to enable development towards a low carbon future in Qatar.
The workshop will challenge the current views and ask the delegates to take a system-wide approach to understanding the underlying challenges, barriers and opportunities.
