The Royal Economic Society will be hosting a half-day, online, Climate Change Summit on 29 September 2022, 13:30-16:15 BST. This event is open to RES members free of charge.
Climate change is one of the greatest challenges facing the planet in the 21st century, and this event will provide insight for academics, policymakers, and educators about challenges, and insights that economics can provide relating to climate change.
This event consists of two parts. Professor Lord Nicolas Stern will chair the first part, drawing together a panel of experts on the impact of climate change from economics and the Natural Sciences. This session will explore the likely economic impact of climate change and how economists can continue to contribute to the debate.
The second part of the event will provide practical insights from educators into how we can embed the teaching of climate change within core economics undergraduate units.
