SAGES’19 Symposium: Global Climate Challenges for a Blue Green Economy - Evidence, Relevance, Solutions.

SAGES’19 Symposium: Global Climate Challenges for a Blue Green Economy - Evidence, Relevance, Solutions.

Practical solutions to challenges posed by global anthropogenic climate change are non-global: in national and regional regulatory frameworks, in devolved implementation of policy, in behavioural acceptance and desire for change, and in process-level understanding underpinning systems science research.

Scotland is at the forefront of Climate Planning, with world-leading aspirations to shape a new way of living in the face of high-paced environmental change: land use for food and carbon stabilization, fresh water for energy and life, marine environment for energy and food. Aspirational plans need practical working solutions, which need underpinning evidence.

27th-28th of November 2019 - 09:00 to 18:00
