Barras Market of Social Sciences

Published on November 16th, 2016 by admin. Filed under News

As part of ESRC’s Festival of Social Sciences, I was part of a team of University of Glasgow scholars to showcase their research to the general public last weekend at the Barras Market in Glasgow’s east end. I had a “market stall” to tell people about emissions trading, what it is, how it works, and why it may be a good thing. Most surprising insights from the day were that: (i) many had heard about it, (ii) few knew how it works, (iii) many were surprised the policy is actually used (in Europe and the UK), and (iv) everyone felt prices are too low. Definitely an interesting experience!
