The Council for European Studies is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the fourth session of our CES Insights Webinar Series. These virtual gatherings bring together experts on a variety of topics of pressing concern in contemporary Europe, featuring experts from our expansive research networks.
Our next webinar focuses on global cooperation in the movement to take action on climate change. How important will US-EU relations be for meaningful climate action and rapid energy transition in these critical decades to come? Are there particular things happening in Europe now in the area of environmental politics that are especially inspiring or dispiriting? What role do social movements like 350, the organization co-founded by Bill McKibben, and XR/Skolstrejk in Europe play in terms of disrupting the fossil status quo? What are some of the strategies that seem most effective right now for challenging obliviousness in terms of fossil fuel use? How can we build social consensus for revolutionary climate action within nations and between them? Has the COVID pandemic offered any obvious do's and don'ts for international cooperation on climate action? Not least, what role can the arts play in fostering environmental awareness and political engagement?
This exciting, interdisciplinary webinar brings together participants from CES’ growing field of expertise dedicated to issues related to climate change and the environment. CES Executive Committee Member Julia Moses will briefly introduce the session, and Milena Buchs will moderate this exciting conversation between Dominic Boyer and Bill McKibben.
This is part of the CES Insights initiative intended to expand collaboration with scholars and research groups beyond Europe and North America.
