1.5 Degrees: Meeting the Challenges of the Paris Climate Agreement

Date: February 25, 2016

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.
