What Do Policy-Makers Need - and What Scientists Know and What They Don't
Climate Change and Environment
Why is dialogue between politicians and academia important? How can we improve the conversation? What is the current status on what we know and don't? What do politicians need of new knowledge in order to make impactful policies, and what role will the industry play in tackling our generations most pressing problem?
Leading politicians and scientists will meet November 10th in The Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters to discuss what knowledge politicians need in order to make impactful policies to tackle climate change. Among the participants is the governor of California Jerry Brown, the Minister of Climate and Environment Vidar Helgesen and world leading climate researchers from Nordic and foreign academies.
The Saturday 11th session will be an extension of the previous day's conversation, drawing further on expertise from academia and politics, and bringing in fresh perspectives from industry.
