Climate Change and the transition to a zero-emisson society. - A series of seminars presented by Andrea Tilche
Seminar 2: Decarbonisation 2.0
An exploration of the possible technological, non-technological, and system-level solutions for keeping the planet within the 1.5-2.0°C Paris Agreement range, and of the essential components of a (public) research and innovation agenda to accompany the herculean decarbonization effort of the next twenty-thirty years.
Climate change is probably the most complex planetary challenge that humanity has to face. Despite of the large number of authoritative scientific reports that show its acceleration, its growing risks, and the progressive reduction of the window of opportunity to act towards cost-effective and equitable solutions, very little steps forward have been done by the international community.
This series of seminars wants to open a broad discussion on this subject, through an approach that looks at the physical, ideal, political, economic and social roots of the problem, in order to frame a proposal for the transition to a sustainable zero-carbon society in which the Universities – as sites of new cultural development – and the young generations – as essential actors of change – have to play an essential role.
All students and employees are welcome. The seminars have a red thread, but may be attended as single seminars.
