Policy and finance for climate action
Climate change is more present and noticeable each day. The year 2017 was
a record breaking year in higher temperatures, extreme weather events, and
shrinking polar caps… The challenges are daunting!
Spurred by increased global awareness and advances in technology, international
climate policy is finally gathering momentum. The Paris Agreement marks
a clear acceleration in climate action, committing to keep global warming
below 2 degrees by decreasing the use of fossil fuels, increasing renewable
energy and by implementing adaptation and resilience measures. The climate
pledges made by the international community, national governments and
private actors must now be translated into meaningful action.
Finance is one of the key drivers of this much needed climate action. Now is
the time for innovative, creative solutions to mobilise the necessary resources
and trigger involvement from all levels of society: Governments, the private
sector, communities and individuals.
The Summer Academy 2018 will sketch a roadmap to a low-carbon future:
From the international climate policy framework, to national policy and finance
lessons of the German energy transition, down to the different forms of climate
finance and the participation of multi-level stakeholders.
The Academy features workshops, visits to a wind energy farm and a renewable
electricity storage plant, a three-day conference program, networking
events and a festive goodbye barbecue in Berlin.
The Summer Academy 2018 will run from 22-27 July 2017 in Greifswald and Berlin, Germany.
