big-ucl-isr-steinerlec

Achim Steiner (Director of the Oxford Martin School) will deliver UCL ISR Public Lecture titled ‘Lost in the Green Economy Transition: Environmental Imperatives vs. Economic Uncertainties’ at University College London (UCL) (Room B404 – LT2, Cruciform Building, Gower Street, London, WC1E 6BT) on 30 November 2016 (17:45 – 19:00).

 

The lecture will focus on a number of ‘trade-offs’ associated with transitioning to a green economy in the wake of the historic Paris Agreement and adoption of the 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda and how these may be addressed in evolving pathways in the domains of policy, the economy and technology innovation.

 

Achim Steiner was appointed Director of the Oxford Martin School on 1 September 2016. Before that he served as United Nations Under-Secretary General and Executive Director of the United Nations Environment Programme UNEP (2006-2016).

 

This lecture is part of the series of public lectures hosted by the UCL Institute for Sustainable Resources (ISR).

Tyndall Climate Change Conference: Radical Emission Reduction

SML-tyndall-radicalconfA Climate Change conference on Radical Emission Reduction will take place at the Royal Society in London on 10-11 December 2013.

In response to the question ‘Why radical mitigation (i.e. emission reductions)?’ the conference webpage declares,Today, in 2013, we face an unavoidably radical future. We either continue with rising emissions and reap the radical repercussions of severe climate change, or we acknowledge that we have a choice and pursue radical emission reductions: No longer is there a non-radical option.’

Organised by The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research, this international conference aims to provide an evidence-base for developing radical-mitigation strategies against climate change.  Fostering an up-beat and can-do mentality, it will consider how to deliver reductions in energy consumption of at least 8% per year (~60% across a decade). Although academic in format, this forum will bring together practitioners and decision-makers in public and business sectors and civil society as well as academics, researchers and students, inviting all – participants and others – to share their ideas on this 8% reduction, using Twitter hash-tag #RadicalPlan

On Day 1, Naomi Klein, the author of The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, will deliver the keynote address via weblink. The day will see six sessions:

  • The rationale and framing for the conference
  • Framing and barriers to radical mitigation
  • Understanding the policy context
  • Policy options for radical mitigation
  • Behaviours and political and social norms
  • Behaviours and engaging publics

It will end with a poster session with a reception.

Day 2 will comprise six sessions:

  • Governance for radical mitigation
  • Delivering radical mitigation 1
  • Delivering radical mitigation 2
  • Mobilising action amongst non-government actors
  • Lifestyles and emissions
  • Pathways for radical mitigation

The Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research is a partnership between a selection of researchers from eight UK universities, namely Cardiff, Newcastle, Cambridge, East Anglia (headquarters),  Manchester, Oxford, Southampton and  Sussex. Together with contributions from Fudan University in China, the Centre forms the Tyndall Consortium.

Driven by its vision, ‘To be an internationally recognised source of high quality and integrated climate-change research, and to exert a seminal influence on the design and achievability of the long-term strategic objectives of national and international climate policy,’ The Centre aims ‘to research, assess and communicate from a distinct trans-disciplinary perspective, the options to mitigate, and the necessities to adapt to, climate change, and to integrate these into the global, UK and local contexts of sustainable development.’ It works not only within the research community, but also with business leaders, policy advisors, the media and the public in general.
