We are pleased to invite you to an informal seminar that will tackle some of the key issues at stake as the world is gathering for climate negotiations towards COP21 in Paris later this year. Kevin Anderson
, professor at University of Manchester and Deputy Director of Tyndall Centre, UK’s premier climate change research institution will challenge us all with his analysis of the remaining carbon budget and its implications on emissions reduction trajectories and need for radical transformation
across all sectors of society.Pat Mooney
, Executive Director of ETC Group and Right Livelihood Award recipient 1985, will expose how the Paris meeting risks locking us into risky, planetary-scale technological ‘false solutions
’ such as geo-engineering
, Asia Director of ETC Group, will reflect on the progress towards the establishment of a global UN-based mechanism for technology assessment
to be paired with vibrant, civil society monitoring to ensure real rather than false solutions are favoured.Niclas Hällström
, Director of What Next Forum, will discuss the bold idea of a global renewable energy support programme
that could enable countries in both the North and South to quickly embark on a transformation towards 100% renewable energy and provide a positive boost to the climate negotiations.
Following the brief initial presentations, we look forward to a stimulating conversation among all presenters and participants.Download pdf
