In the wake of the hottest years on record, only robust measures to curb greenhouse gases promise relief from more frequent and intense storms, droughts, flooding, wildfires, and famines. Robert Frank’s new book, ‘Under the Influence’, describes how the strongest predictor of our willingness to support climate-friendly policies, install solar panels, or buy an electric car is the number of people we know who have already done so.

Join us as Peter Dolton (Research Director, NIESR) sits down with Robert Frank (New York Times Bestseller and Economics Columnist) to discuss how to unlock the latent power of social context.

Date: 9th March

Time: 4pm - 5.30pm

Place: 2 Dean Trench Street, London, SW1P 3HE
