1.5 Degrees: Meeting the Challenges of the Paris Climate Agreement
Join in the discussion about the promise and challenges of meeting the recent international climate agreement.
The agreement reached during the 21st Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change, also called COP21, was a big one: world leaders would work to limit warming from climate change to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. This international meeting, organised by the Environmental Change Institute of Oxford University in the United Kingdom, will address that goal.
The event will draw scientists, policy-makers, business leaders and civil society members to discuss the impacts of 1.5°C of warming on the planet -- and what nations can do to meet this goal. The meeting will also inform a special report about this target that the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change will release in 2018.
The full conference programme and a call for papers will be announced during the first quarter of 2016 along with registration and event details. You can find more information about the 1.5 Degrees conference here.
