Climate Engineering Conference 2017

Germany
Berlin
Event start: 20171009
End date: 20171012

Event description

Climate engineering is becoming increasingly relevant within political, scientific, and cultural discussions of climate change. Building on the success of the first international climate engineering conference in 2014 (CEC14), CEC17 will allow critical global discussions to be continued by bringing together the research, policy, and civic communities to discuss the highly complex and interlinked ethical, social and technical issues related to climate engineering. The conference will provide a thorough and timely update on the latest developments in the field and facilitate discussions about the future development of CE research. CEC17 will also serve as an opportunity for a diverse audience of policy-makers, civil society organizations, and members of the public to critically engage with current research and the broader discussions that surround it.

The conference is hosted by the Institute for Advanced Sustainability Studies and is endorsed by the Earth System Governance Project.

Objectives:

  • Bringing together the debate’s diverse stakeholders – academics as well as representatives from the policy and civil society communities.
  • Providing a forum to present and discuss results, review the state of the debate, and scope key research questions and challenges for academia and society.
  • Providing a forum for experimentation with innovative session formats to address the complexity of issues around the topic of climate engineering.
  • Providing a platform for networking, collaboration and exchange across disciplines, sectors (particularly academia, policy and civil society), countries, continents, and generations.

Where & when:

CEC17 will be held between the 9th and the 12th of October, 2017 at the Umweltforum and the adjacent, historically listed Neue Mälzerei, located just minutes from Alexanderplatz in Berlin, Germany.
