Shell is famous for its scenarios and Clive will look at alternative futures for a world where population growth and urbanization are already testing the planet's natural resources. What are the implications for carbon emissions, climate change and international conflict? Who will be the winners and losers? This will be powerful and thought provoking, with an emphasis on the practical. If we are to take control of our future and mitigate the effects of climate change, which approaches and policy instruments are most likely to succeed? Are methodical, incremental improvements the way forward or commitment to game-changing solutions? Or some currently elusive combination of the two? Where should we look for commercial opportunities and above all what are the challenges for leadership – public and personal?"
