Universities and Climate Change: The Role of Climate Change Research and Projects in Fostering Climate Action
December 12, 2017 - December 13, 2017
Many universities across the world perform state-of-the-art research on matters related to climate change, both in respect of mitigation and adaptation. Yet, as shown by the latest 21st Conference of the Parties of the U.N. Convention on Climate Change (COP 21), held in Paris in December 2015, there is much room for improvements in the role played by universities in the negotiations and in influencing decision-making on a matter of such a global importance.
The Universities and Climate Change will involve researchers in the field of climate change in the widest sense, not only from traditional climate science, but also from the fields of environment, human geography, business and economics, arts, administration and media studies.
The symposium will focus on the role of climate change research and projects in fostering climate action, and will contribute to the further development of this fast-growing field.
