The reason Exeter University believes this partnership is positive is not out of naivety nor hope, but because they’ve failed to interrogate Shell’s motives and failed to engage with the facts. Shell has no intention of fundamentally changing its operation model - its logic is that it can continue burning oil and gas because it can offset these emissions through future unproven carbon capture technologies. It’s worth going over the context, and the evidence.
My experience at the EUniverCities Urban Sustainable Development Conference in Innsbruck.
My few days in Innsbruck have given me even more inspiration and hope for Universities as powerful institutions for collaborative change.
