Claiming the sky back
6 January 2023 @ 7:30 pm - 9:30 pm GMT
Talk by Ria Urban, in person at the AUC and online.
The talk is going to start be referring back to the “Losing the Sky” talk from a year ago, just summarising what issues were mentioned there. I am going to continue by updating the data/information with current figures, new issues and events. Then the main focus of the talk will be what the industry and agencies are trying to do to mitigate these problems, what technology is already available, what the plans are, how governments are getting involved, with a focus on the UK and Scotland (but also mentioning global efforts as well).
