Carbon Budgets

The Paris Agreement charted a new course in the global climate effort, but can we really reach the ambitions with the frameworks in place? Join this conference to discuss alternative solutions with international experts!

Context of the event

To achieve the ambition of limiting the global temperature rise this century to 1.5 degrees Celsius as stated in the Paris Agreement concluded during the COP21 negotiations in Paris in late 2015, new methodologies and pathways to move faster towards stabilising the global climate need to be considered. Scientific and technological options must be re-examined.

About the event

Therefore the upcoming one-day event introduces the use of Global  and Personal Carbon Budgets, and will provide a space for experts from all over Europe, and beyond, to debate and consider different options in the run up to the coming United Nations Climate Change Conference in Katowice, the COP24.
