Financial and Access Questions

Is financial support available?

The Earth System Governance Project, in collaboration with the conference co-host the German Institute of Development and Sustainability – IDOS allocated funds to provide financial support to early-career participants and individuals from lower income countries attending the 2023 Radboud conference. All available funds have been allocated, and eligible participants have been contacted individually.
More information regarding funding and visa can be found here.

Is a reduced registration fee available?

Students (graduate and PhD) must supply a document, such as a student ID or letter of supervisor/university, stating that the student is currently enrolled at a college or university by email to ipo@earthsystemgovernance.org.

2022 opening plenary of #ESG2022

The official opening session of the 2022 Toronto Conference on Earth System Governance was hosted at the conference venue and streamed live to virtual attendees.

The keynote presentation was by Tzeporah Berman: “Oil Politics in a World on Fire”

“After a summer of record heatwaves, floods and fires sweeping the planet and displacing millions of people, the worlds governments in New York in September and did…very little to slow down the devastating impacts of climate change. Reflecting on her experiences meeting the CEO’s of oil companies, advising governments, blockading fossil fuel projects and now building a campaign for a new global fossil fuel non-proliferation treaty, Tzeporah Berman joins the 2022 Conference on Earth System Governance to discuss what’s holding us back from climate progress, whether Net Zero commitments are hurting or helping and whether there is reason for hope in a world on fire.”
