Yes, the My2050 app is still live, going strong and providing DECC with useful opinions the UK’s possible 2050 pathways.
Last month, the app was used in a very interesting manner where the DECC Youth Panel were involved in building a group consensus on the pathways. The event took place at the Bath Youth Climate Summit which is organised by the Green Vision Movement. Tom Youngman explains how he ran the process:
We did a nice interactive thing with the My2050 game. We got a group of 40 to raise their hands to different levels corresponding to levels 1 – 4 on the calculator, and as a group (with my explanation of the levels and need to balance supply and demand) managed to reach the 20% target! They all thought about the lifestyle changes they’d have to make to live in their world. Went really well, thought you might be interested.
It was a really good activity and all teachers I’ve spoken to you about it really love it as an education tool.
My2050 challenges you to get UK CO₂ emissions below 20% by 2050 by setting how much effort is applied to areas both in the Supply and Demand sectors. The percentage is compared to 1990 levels of CO₂ emissions.
This is a project that I am excited about both personally and professionally. It’s a really interesting problem and one that everyone seems to have a different angle on. It has been 12 months in the making and involved a lot of great work from the team here at Delib and especially the 2050 strategy team at DECC.
Let’s hope it makes a great debate and once you’ve submitted your pathway be sure to check back here to see how it’s getting on.
We know what it’s like. Not many organisations like to be the first to adopt to something, especially when it comes to something as sensitive as consultation and engagement.
So, aside from the wide range of accessibility and security testing that Citizen Space has been through, we thought we’d share with you who’s using the system at the moment, so you can see what they’ve been doing with it.
There are many more organisations looking at Citizen Space at the moment due to its low cost, lack of ongoing license fees and proven flexibility. If you’d like to find out more about it, then get in touch!
