Carbon Conversations

The crisis is carbon. The opportunity is for solutions through conversation.

The core of our planet’s crisis is carbon – its use, management and ownership is at the fulcrum of fundamental issues in our world: climate change, environmental stewardship, economic development, culture, ideology and the consumption of resources.

The Trent Centre for Biomaterials Research engages a broad spectrum of thinkers in the Carbon Conversations– from students and scientists to philosophers and consumers – generating discourse about carbon-related sustainability issues and the future of our world.
