Online, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

How can designers and architects help remove carbon from the atmosphere? This special edition of Dezeen's Good Design for a Bad World talks series looks at ways of tackling climate change including carbon-capturing materials, net-zero cities and alternatives to fossil fuels.

Coming ahead of the COP26 climate conference in Glasgow in November, the talk builds on Dezeen's pioneering Carbon Revolution editorial series, which presented carbon as a wonder material and explored ways of capturing atmospheric carbon and putting it to use on earth.

Dezeen's founder and editor-in-chief Marcus Fairs will moderate the talk, which will feature contributions from biomaterials researcher Darshil Shah, Hélène Chartier of C40 Cities, designer Teresa van Dongen and solar design specialist Marjan van Aubel.

The talk takes place during Dutch Design Week.
