Planet in Transition: A road map to the global 2°C target
Discussing the Paris Agreement’s 2°C target actions through different spheres
Both conceptualisation and implementation of effective measures to prevent a dangerous increase in global mean temperature have proven to be difficult. Four years after the 2015 Paris Agreement, which for the first time brought the world together to tackle the common cause of undertaking global, ambitious efforts to mitigate climate change and adapt to its effects, our panel of experts from the spheres of politics, science and communication will discuss where we stand on achieving this goal. The panelists will draw from their personal experience to comment on the challenges regarding mitigation and will address how their professions may provide solutions to meet the global target of 2°C.
