Climate Change and the transition to a zero-emisson society. - A series of seminars presented by Andrea Tilche

Seminar 3: Science and climate policy today

From the hesitations and the slowness of the international negotiations, to some more ambitious national and international policy frameworks and the role of non-state actors. A panorama where science is not always used to inform decisions.

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.
