The Governed Planet: Climate Change, Targets, and the Role of Carbon Negative Technologies

Tim Flannery, Segré Foundation Distinguished Visiting Professor

CIES Geneva Dialogue

Humanity is much closer to committing to crossing the 2°C climate 'guardrail' than previously thought. Moreover, impacts from the current 1°C of warming are proving severe, with catastrophic damage to coral reefs, extinctions and rapid ice melt occurring. It is now impossible both to avert crossing the 2°C threshold by reducing emissions alone, and to return Earth's climate to pre-industrial settings. What, then, should be done?

Acclaimed Australian scientist, explorer and conservationist Tim Flannery will join the Graduate Institute as a Fondation Segré Distinguished Visiting Professor within the Centre for International Environmental Studies. Professor Flannery, who is a Professorial Fellow at the Melbourne Sustainable Society Institute at the University of Melbourne, was previously Chief Commissioner of the Climate Commission.

Moderator: Liliana Andonova, Professor, International Relations / Political Science and Co-Director, Centre for International Environmental Studies, The Graduate Institute, Geneva

The event will take place in auditorium A1A.
