Academia Europaea Bergen Knowledge Hub invites to the meeting on “Balancing mitigation actions and their impacts – Does climate mitigation trump other concerns?”
Dilemmas in implementing rapid transformation of the energy system to reach the Paris targets are many. Our expert panel will present and discuss major challenges and possible conflicts between the SDG goals.
About the meeting
The meeting is held in conjunction with the 2019 Annual national conference on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) as a collaboration between Academia Europaea and the UiB Program for Climate and Energy transformation. We hope for a broad audience of academics, people from the energy sector, NGOs and the general public.
The speakers are leading academics working on the climate change and mitigation areas with broad expertise in energy systems, climate action, biodiversity and ecosystems, energy transition, climate policies in Europe, USA and China and nuclear energy.
The speakers will present major challenges and possible conflicts between the SDG goals, followed by a moderated panel discussion and questions from the audience. For more information please see: https://www.uib.no/en/matnat/123389/does-climate-mitigation-trump-other-concerns
