"A spritz with the climate. Climate Change: who, what, how. An analysis of the ICCG observatories."
Venue: FEEM-ICCG, Island of San Giorgio Maggiore, h. 17.00
Causes and consequences of climate change are plain to see. The "International Center for Climate Governance" – a joint initiative of FEEM and Fondazione Giorgio Cini – has created three Observatories with the goal to deal with these issues.
Who? The Think Tank Map, which collects and maps the existing think thanks, considered to be among the most relevant stakeholders active in the climate change field, whose strenght lies in the definition of concrete policies supported by scientific research.
What? The Climate Policy Watcher, a web platform which analyses worldwide climate and energy policies, offering at the same time multidisciplinary critical analyses on various issues in these fields.
How? The Best Climate Practice, collecting the best global climate practices allowing citizens, institutions, enterprises, and researchers to discover and assess the most efficient and easly implementable practices.
After the seminar… a spritz with the climate!
Speakers: Valeria Barbi e Jan Trevisan, FEEM, ICCG e CMCC
