Climate Change Conference 1 Day October 26th 2018 Central London

Towards a Europe of 2 Tonnes of Carbon -Ambition for the United Nations COP Climate Conference 2018- The implications for each of the European countries

This event will explore the implications of our climate change solutions for the European Nations and actors.
It prepares for the forthcoming  United Nations Climate Conference will take place in Katowice Poland in December 2018.
It is important to understand the implications of- business as usual- scenarios and its dangers for the European Union, to understand how much of the current migration crisis is caused by climate change and the threat that poses to European integration and the future of Europe, but also the various options currently available according to science and policy with regard to the choices of both ambition and solutions.

The Green Economics Institute has created some climate scenarios and works with top scientists and they agree that this idea is significant and will be discussed by the top COP leadership and therefore it is vital to hold an event to put it forward to those interested to explore the impacts of the various scenarios.
The day will have a number of speakers, experts and our delegates to the Katowice United Nations Programme to ensure that Europe gets offered the best possible outcome which has been explored in such an event fully from as many angles as possible.

Papers will be entered for our:

Our Proceedings of the conference,.

and many of  other publications – please ask if you have a special favourite.

The day will include a Call for Papers, presentations and expert panels around the idea of an implementation of a Two tonnes of carbon europe and in particular it will explore the likely impacts of both business as usual and climate impacts in each of the EU countries so far, the business as usual impacts and the impacts of implementing the 2 tonnes of carbon scenarios on each of the European countries and regions with an aim of issuing a report after this event.

This will be  in time to take the report to the COP24 Katowice Poland conference. This is causing great challenges for a country based on its reliance on coal mining.
The future of energy, transport and food will be explored but most importantly the economics effects of climate change for theAcademic journal.The International Journal of Green Economics

Our books– we have a lively publishing house economy and how we can work together on that in the challenging years to come and in particular our institute specialises in supporting countries who try to make a transformation and we can help them in the challenges they face.

This event is designed to examine three climate change scenarios for each European country and to start a proces of examining possible policy options for Europe. This follows on from our work at Bonn in Germany where we began the negotiations for such a climate and economic scenario in November 2018.

The aim is to involve speakers, writers and policy makers from around Europe and to provide some policy advise arising from the findings of the event.
It will build on previous work we have done including a range of books on europe, The greening of Europe, also launched at Europe House, The Greening of the Mediteranean, THe European Economy Crisis and Recovery, the Greening of Eastern Europe and many more.
The continuing relationship with Europe and collaboration on climate change is absolutely vital and this event begins that process explicitly.
